The past month or so has been pretty manic for me and I feel like I have neglected this blog so sorry about that! I’m running the London Marathon next month so all my free time is being taken up by running. Sometimes I feel like all I do is work or run. Luckily, I enjoy both so it hasn’t been too much of a hardship.
I’ve completed a few half marathons before so I’m not new to running but this is going to be my first full marathon. I’m still not entirely sure how I’m going to run 26.2 miles but I’m training hard and hoping for the best!
I come from a family of runners so I’ve received plenty of good advice to help me with my training and my mum has kept me company on the long weekend runs.
So far my training has been going really well, I ran 18 miles last weekend and will be running 20 on Sunday. Running a marathon is such a huge commitment, I never thought I would be getting up early on a Saturday to go for a 3 hour run.
The good thing is I’m doing all of this for a great cause. I’m raising money for Make-A-Wish UK – an amazing charity who grant the wishes of seriously ill children. I’d really appreciate it if you could sponsor me, you can visit my page here. Thank you!
I’ll keep you up to date with my training and obviously let you know how I get on in the actual race on April 24th – wish me luck!
