Blimey 50m!! It will certainly keep you motivated after completing your marathon though.
I pop into this thread from time to time to see how you're getting on but don't think I've actually posted yet.
Obviously for a first post I was going with the traditional "Good luck" sort of thing but after reading today's update I'm going to branch out a little ----Booktrunk, you're mad!
The LAKELAND 50m? Jeebus Duck. That's meant to be really really hard. You're mad. Good luck!
Good luck to you, madness and all!
I'm just in awe of people who do marathons and worse. I'm too lazy to go that far!
Woohoo well done to you. You are doing fantastic keep up all the good work
Well done, 28k is 17.5m, only 8.7 to go on the day, also there hopefully wont be any stiles or ploughed fields, both of those always slow me down.I also assume that you may have had hot weather today another strength sapper. I assume Leicester in October will be a little cooler. And with 3 weeks more training and 2 week taper you will steam around it. Cant wait to find out your time.
Well done Steph! I have been following your marathon training journey on and off over the months and you have made awesome progress
Oh wow. 28k. That's huge. Well done!! *wanders out of the thread all awed*
I am absolutely in awe of you. You are such an inspiration. Good luck for 14th October, I'll be rooting for you.
Have you always been so driven? I can understand wanting to lose a little weight and set yourself a challenge but from nothing to a marathon in 22 weeks is practically Ranulph Fiennes territory!
I've just restarted running after a long gap and am following a 10k plan using a treadmill - would prefer to run outside but need someone with me to chivvy me along and take my mind off wanting to stop. Now when I feel like giving up I think of what you've achieved. (still haven't ventured outside thou' in case it's even harder than I think it'll be ). Well done you!
I know. Hubby is a runner but he can't run as slow as me (it's quite a skill) so I keep plodding on the treadmill.I 've decided that even indoor running is better than no running at all so will probably continue on tready for a bit and maybe do the odd Sunday run outside in daylight.
I fancy doing the GEAR 10k in Kings Lynn but it's not till May so I should probably find something a bit sooner. TBH I just want to enjoy running and am looking forward to a (distant) time when I'm actually enjoying it rather than wondering how soon I can stop!
Glad its all coming together for you.
