My first proper race since the NYC marathon 4 months ago. Training has gone pretty well since, although all of that training has been endurance work in preparation for the Manchester & London marathon's in April. So the big question was, how is my half marathon pace looking? can I run close to my PB pace or have I lost some of that speed during the endurance training.
You may or may not already know that I am going to be running the Virgin London Marathon in 2018 and running for the British Heart Foundation. I thought I would write a quick blog on my reasons why I am running for the BHF and the target I have now set myself.
This is my review of how things went for me during 2017. This was my second year of running, but really the first year where I actually had some structure to it.
A very tough race for more reasons than difficult obstacles, but a good fun afternoon out with great people.
After 19 weeks of training I enter the final 2 weeks of my Berlin training. Two weeks of tapering and resting up for Berlin.....
My first mass start open water swim / race and my first swim over 1 mile. A lot of firsts for one day, have a read how things went on what was a very chilly morning in London
