Here's my pre-London Marathon pep talk. Short, sweet, and includes people dressed as beer for comedic purposes.
So I'm onto tapering and put in 12 miles today on the Oxford canals. Also, no famous people on the course today. Especially no John Barrowman. A girl can dream...
There is a distinct mental difference between "running" and "completing" mileage. Here's how to change the way you see your training.
I've taken up interval training as part of my marathon training. It's the worst. It's awful. So, yeah, I'm doing it.
I had a crummy run. This is how I resolved to not let it stop me. (With a bit of help from Mother Nature.)
I have commenced the 'official' portion of my marathon training which, like all dedicated runners, involves feeling totally out of sorts and unsure of what I am doing.
October has come to an end and with it I bring a cold and the continued determination to get myself back in shape for London 2016!
I've started my training and taken the time to run the numbers on what it will take to finish the marathon. Also, I currently run slightly faster than a sloth. (Yay, sloths!)
Here are my foolproof steps to planning the perfect marathon training.
