It’s that time of year again! My 39th birthday is rapidly approaching and I realised that time is running out (no pun intended) on me achieving my goal of running a marathon before I turn the big four zero.
Is it a mid life crisis type of thing? Possibly but it’s certainly cheaper than buying a sports car! Now which one to enter London, Paris, New York? Well actually none of the above, instead I’ve decided to enter the Brathay Windermere marathon described as one of the most scenic road marathons in the UK as well as one of the most challenging courses.
Having chosen which marathon, it’s time to get serious about my training and I’ve enlisted the help of Wayne Singleton from Jogging Pals to help me devise and stick to a training plan. Wayne is a top bloke as well as a UK Athletics Coach, seasoned marathon and ultra runner. Jogging pals is an amazing running group that is all about making running fun and inclusive go check out their programmes at https://www.joggingpals.co.uk/
I’m really interested to see how my body is going to cope with the increased training load and I will be writing a monthly blog to track my progress and giving you my insights as a physio and a runner along the way.
