So the first day of the official start to my Asics Target 26.2 training schedule for my sub 3 attempt at the Paris marathon has arrived! Very, very, very excited!
Yesterday had a brilliant day at the Asics store on Oxford street in London getting kitted out in all the latest gear, it was like being a kid in a sweet store! Gait analysis was interesting, found my running style has changed a substantial amount from when I first started running properly over 10 years ago. It makes sense really, all the years of training has strengthened my body and the support I once needed from orthotics is no longer required, my body is doing the job now! I will however proceed carefully, I'm not going to jump off the deep end and stop using them all the time.
I then had a good chat with Steve about my running and the schedule that awaits me for the next 16 weeks.
So kitted out in some of my new gear I set off today for my first run of the schedule, just an easy 5 miles for today, left the watch at home and just ran comfortable! Lets hope the next few months are as easy and straight forward as today!
