Great website roadrunner, I'll be following your progress and hope you achieve all your goals. Your training schedule looks good, just remember to ease off if you're feeling off-colour or have a cold etc. Nothing more demoralising than having to take a week off with flu because you've done too much too soon. Have been contemplating losing my excess 1 1/2 stones lately and you have inspired me to start making a real effort starting now. So thanks for that and best of luck!
I'm still feeling the effects of the marathon. Have been on a few short jogs since which all felt a bit like my legs were dragging. Did a 15 min threshold run the other night which felt great and then doing 45 mins steady yesterday was hard work and my heart rate was unusually high for the pace I was doing, although I didn't actually measure my pace so I may have been going too fast.
I've recently got boyfriend Bananna into running. He's been every day since sunday for a 10 minute jog and is planning to steadily increase that in the coming weeks. Hoping we'll do FLM next year but not saying anything to him yet-boy that would scare him off!
