Weight 12st 10lbs (but our scales weigh heavy!)
Ran 2.5 miles
My first official training run for the Virgin London marathon 2013 and my first blog post. There is a lot of time for thinking during marathon training and lots of people seem to convert that thinking into writing so I thought I’d give it a go.
I’m not under any illusion that people will be particularly interested in reading this but you never know what gems I might be able to impart.
I’m running the marathon in aid of Barnardo’s (http://www.barnardos.org.uk/) who I currently work for managing the Big Toddle. More about them tomorrow…
I managed 2.5 miles at 06:15 this morning. It was gorgeous out there but flippin’ cold! I must buy some longer socks to avoid chilly ankles. I felt pretty good despite dropping my iphone into a muddy bog and nearly falling into it myself. Luckily the iphone and me survived.
I’ve set myself a mini challenge of running for 30 minutes three times this week and a bit longer than that on Saturday. One down, two to go.
Must lose some weight before Christmas – I don’t want to be dragging all this lard around the marathon with me!
