Marathon distance run number 10, my fifth of 2018 and final race of the year. I came into today wondering whether this was a race too far, feeling tired and carrying an injury, despite that I was still going to give it my best shot and try for a PB, anything under 3:35 will be a PB and a massive achievement given the injury. Here is my story of November 4th 2018.
Here we go again, flying out to New York for the NYC marathon. This blog is all about my travelling out, the expo and Saturday 5k. All of the preparations for Sundas marathon.
Now that Ironman is in the past it is time to get cracking with marathon training once again. My two autumn marathons in Chicago and New York City are fast approaching and I have some BIG goals to hit this year.
This is my recap of marathon number 4, my second world marathon major. My open and honest account of my New York marathon experience.
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.
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.
