Good morning/afternoon/evening reader (delete as appropriate), and welcome to my first ever blog post. Before I start, let me apologise for a few things.....
I promised I'd be back this week with a more in depth review of the Staten Island half marathon, and here I am. Before that, it's been another enjoyable week, even though I may have not been "by the book". This week I ran 5 miles on Wednesday, 4 on Thursday, 8 on Friday and … Continue reading Reviewing the Staten Island half Marathon.
Good morning/afternoon/evening. I don't know if anyone has said this previously, but one thing I now know about training for a Marathon is that it us full of ups and downs. Not just the hills that we run over, but psychologically. In my last post, I mentioned that it was a difficult run for me, … Continue reading The Ups and Downs of Training.

I am now 2 weeks in, 31 miles and I'm talking about temptation.
I have officially started my marathon training, and am 15 miles in. I'll discuss that, the Achilles hope and possibility race and the 3rd charity I'll be running for.
Part of training for the marathon means running half marathons, and this is my post about my first half of the year, the Brooklyn half marathon.
Good morning/afternoon/evening dear reader. In the few weeks since I last posted, I've went up to 9.5 and then 11 miles of running today in preparation for next week's Brooklyn half marathon. To say today's 11 miles was tough is an understatement. Last week, I felt really good after 9.5 miles that you wouldn't think … Continue reading Double figure milage is tough!
