Back to it!

6 Oct

I’ve not ran since early September for one reason or another which includes work, laziness, home life, laziness, been unwell, laziness!!!! You get the picture. Well I finally dragged myself out of the front door yesterday with the intention of a 3 mile run, although I did have it in my head that this would be cut short if my fitness had totally deserted me. Once I got out it was like ‘Why have I not been out for a whole month’, I loved it and the running felt pretty good too. It was so nice to just be out there running and thinking about….. nothing/rubbish.

On the whole the year has been pretty good, I’ve managed to run more often than most years even though I have never managed to get any decent times and running through the hot weather this summer has almost destroyed me and I think this is partly the reason why I have not ran much in the last month. Now however I feel as if I could run and run (this may change in a few days lol).

This time last year I remember thinking that the acceptance/rejection letters for London Marathon were almost due and thinking that I really hope I don’t get in as I will never be able to run it (I had signed up after a few drinks). this time however I am so hoping that I get in and looking forward to some winter training. Also looking at buying some trail shoes.

I’m not going to make any plans on what I will/won’t do over the next few weeks but I am going to try and get in as many and varied runs as possible over the winter regardless of gaining entry to the London Marathon or not.

As an update since my last blog I did complete the Middlesbrough 10K even though training was saying I wouldn’t complete the course I did manage to get round in 51:09 which is a couple of minutes off my pb so quite happy. I would love to beat my parkrun pb before the year is out so watch this space.

Anyway, Hope everyone’s running/life is going great!!!
