Well today has been a pretty long day! Still go t another 4 1/2 hours to go! Looking forward to my santa run this weekend. My little boy will love it!

did you manage your lunch time run?

I think I made a few people sick which my toenails, i didnt really mind them though as they didnt hurt or stop me running.

I think the most important thing whether you get through to paris or not is to speak to people who have done a few and know what they are talking about (like on this forum). They will be able to give you tips on distances to run, how often to run, fuel, rest days etc. My other tip is to get out with a running club/others....makes long runs far more enjoyable

HI Sarah

Yes I managed my lunch time run. I have a 10k route that I always do which if im honest does get a little bit boring. I keep alternating which way i run it to try and mix it up a bit. I have wanted to join a running club but the trouble is I work from 8am - 10pm Tues Wed & Fri I have my son stay over on Thurs nights during the week which leaves Mon night when I have him till 7.

As you can see this does not leave me much time... I am very much motivated by my own progress though and am really proud at how far I have come in a year. I am lacking experience and knowledge ao am really happy that I have discovered these forums.  I've never trainied with anybody so it would be nice to do long runs with somebody but I am very much used to being by myself in my own little world.

There could be someone on here from your neck of the woods?

I do alot of my runs on my own too, for the same reasons as you really, by the time I can run, all the club runs set of an hour previously. I get to run with one of my clubs probably every 2 weeks so not that often, but I do keep intouch with them on facebook and via text so I still get tips and motivation, that was before I knew this forum I get those things on here too.

Hope you have a fun weekend

Yeah hopefully i will meet people on here that are local and can meet with them to go for a run! I would really like that!!

Im going to the football tomorrow for an all expenses paid 3 course meal and unlimited free alcohol?!?! Then I've got a santa run on Sun which could be affected by Saturdays antics. Cant see me getting a personal best but i shall give it my all as my son will be there so like to make him proud.

What are your plans?

Well another day closer and another night dreaming of becoming part of the final 5. I hope that I can get the votes I need to see me through so that I can prove I have what it takes to hit my target. Good night for now ready for fresh legs in the morning
