The final two weeks of marathon training before running the New York Marathon on the 5th November. A training plan which pretty much started on the 27th December 2016, but the majority of the training began after the Paris Marathon in April. The New York marathon will be day 192 of this training block. Have a read how these 14 days went leading up to the marathon.
Just four weeks left until it is marathon day, my forth marathon of 2017 and possibly the biggest race of my life. I spent week 3 out in Arizona cycling 313 miles into Las Vegas, but have a read how week 4 went once I got back running in the UK.
On October 8th a group of 44 cyclists arrived in Cameron Arizona with a range of abilities but all with the same shared goal. Riding 300+ miles from Cameron Arizona, along the Grand Canyon, through the Arizona desert arriving at Last Vegas 5 days later. This is my personal account of how things went from my eyes, we all will have differing stories along the way but I hope you enjoy mine.
Now Berlin is done, it is time to officially concentrate on the New York marathon which is only six weeks away. This is the first block of New York training.
After July's GoTri this was my first attempt at a Sprint distance triathlon and forms part of my continuing training towards a full Ironman in Bolton next July.
A very tough race for more reasons than difficult obstacles, but a good fun afternoon out with great people.
Marathon number 3 and my first World Marathon Major. I ran this marathon as part of the Prostate Cancer UK team and like all marathons, it was a marathon of two halves. A good half and a not so good half.
