Not a great start to the week, luckily it was a less intense week of training. Mind was on overtime with work. Trying not to compare myself to others, seeing what everyone else is doing in the run up to london marathon. The end of the week was better, back on track, runs completed. FeltContinue reading “Week 9”
Another week and at the half way point, current status in a relationship with a marathon training plan. As I do every week, a check of the plan and see how I can fit in the weeks ahead training. The week started off well and managed 2 runs with Annie who I’m running the marathonContinue reading “Week 8”

Check my plan and see what was to achieve this week. Monday first run of the week, however this was coupled with my fist panic attack in ages. This panic attacks came out of the blue.
My names Gina and it feels like deja vu back to January 2017. I’m about to put myself to the test in running another marathon. It takes a special kind of nutter to contemplate running marathon.
