They say that you learn a lot about yourself when training for and running a marathon. I am not sure who ‘they’ are but they weren’t wrong. Both of my parents have run marathons in the past. I had seen firsthand how a marathon can break someone down, how it brings out raw emotion, and how it will take you to the edge and then shove you right over. I was under no illusion about what could happen, but there were vests to chase and dreams to be realised, this was my time.
Ello ello, how are we all doing? Did you know I ran the Great South Run? I think I did a very good job of keeping it quiet 😉 First it was Greggsland a few weeks back and now it was time to tackle the Navy Capital of England!
Are ya alreet, pet? If you are one of the unlucky ones who follows me on any kind of social media you may have seen I’ve been spamming A LOT about my run in GNR. I am not even sorry either. What went down in Greggsland was pure belta.
The TL;DR on the ‘Lockdown Marathon’ is my coach gave me a… talking to… and thus it was “shit canned” (Rikki James). So the only way to make up for this is to update you extensively on my track season this year. You may celebrate.
Everything I wanted to achieve in running is going to be a no go (if you’ll pardon the pun) so let’s do something else. Let’s do something to make me a ‘proper runner’.
I’m back now from Budapest all rested up and ready to crush my next training block. Oh, I had a lovely trip thank you for asking 😘
What the frick qualifies a jumped up 5K runner to talk about marathons? I’ve actually run one. Yep, I ran Loch Ness Marathon this year with my mum (9 time marathoner) and I learned a lot.
