I have been running for quite a few years now and my Last Marathon was London 2006 - my 11th and 12 marathons in all, 50odd halves so quite experienced
At the end of 2007 the wheels seemed to fall of my running and I lost a lot of interst and my mileage lowered considerably and all the enthusiasm went, this contined so I didnt run enough to even warrant putting in my daily diary for June July August this year (I have kept a running log) for at leat 6 years. Unfortunatly the guy I run with is much faster than me so I dont go with him anymore as I am embarrased about my own fitness and holding him back.
I turned 50 in July and got a bit down about it and August went by with minimal mileage picked up in September and the old enthusiasm is back but unfortunatly I have put on a stone and lost fitness and I am now struggling round 4 miles slowly.
I am moving to Scotland soon and want to run Edinburgh, Loch Ness and Locahabar and also have another crack at 3:30 at London
My other half thinks exercise is a foreign language which doesnt help either. So I am coming back to the forum. Sorry to bore you all but I needed to talk to someone and get this off my chest. Off for 4 miles later ( Dont think I will be in marathon shape again until 2010)
