There are officially 20 weeks to go until I run 26.2 miles in the London Marathon. This scares me quite a lot. Not only am I running the marathon for myself, but I am running it in memory of Vic, and am running it for all those people who have sponsored me, who have supported me and believed in me. I don’t want to let anyone down! This is the first of the weekly countdown posts detailing my training runs- sorry for the gross photos of myself!
This weeks training runs have been….ok. I was scheduled to run 3 miles on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday then 5.5 miles on Sunday.
Tuesday’s run was pretty miserable. To start with it was dark, raining and cold, but I managed to force myself outside. Annoyingly though things were against me once I was outside as my stomach was playing up, my bra strap unpinged half-way through the run (not comfortable) and I wasn’t able to do it up again whilst running. Plus I had worn my MIND top for inspiration but it kept riding up which meant that I spent the run pulling/holding my top down, very annoying.
