Did not feel up to running tonight- a tough couple days- so instead, when the world is crying out for something- anything- cheerful, here is my own little celebration.
I AM IN THE LONDON MARATHON 2018!
Yes, I know I knew that before, following my deferral from the 2017 event because of injury (find out more here), but hey- it is great to have it confirmed, isn’t it!
So, with just 200 days to go until the event, I need to start running on my foundations. Tonight has not helped me; but this year it is a question of holding and maintaining, rather than growing. I do know that if I did go out tonight, then it would have been bad, and put me off further. With a half marathon in 12 days time and a fast 10 miler next month, I am planning in key events which will keep me on track without of breaking myself. Factor in some cycling (when I can), and daily stretching, I should be constructing a framework for my success.
Either way- I did not go out, and I AM IN!!
