My training has been the best ever! I've been following my own plan of running a fast 5k each week, a 10k each week, and then building up my kilometres on the third training day. I have run two half marathon training sessions, one two weeks ago and one yesterday. I have my VERY long training run next Sunday and then can start tapering at last :-)
I believe my training has been so successful because, for two of the runs each week, I have my running partner Felicity with me! This has really helped get me out of the door in the snow, rain, and wind!
I am very much looking forward to both Barcelona and Rome marathons :-) I can't wait to visit both cities again! As of now I know no one in Barcelona and aren't in touch with anyone that will be running there! I'm sure I'll find a local to run next to and talk their ears off a bit ;-)
In Rome I am meeting up with an old school friend of mine called Danny. I haven't seen him in 20 years so it will be lovely to have a chance to catch up. He ran London marathon for the first time last year. It seems he caught the bug too!
omg you're almost there! I'm soooo excited for you. Good luck!ReplyDelete
