Training Weekly: London week 16/16

Training Weekly: London week 16/16

Oh lord…. how are we here! It’s London marathon week. I keep getting waves of excitement in amongst the prevailing nerves. My plan for this week is fairly low key. I’m going to aim for some short, sharp 200’s on Tuesday, but otherwise just a […]

Training Weekly: London week 15/16

14 weeks of seriously hard work, and now we’re here…. tapering! In some ways, even though I’m relieved to have got to this point, it’s my least favourite part of marathon training. I hate the feeling of being in limbo, falling towards an end point […]

And just like that, we’ve hit the final week before taper. I’m not sure if I’m relieved or petrified, but there’s not a lot I can do about either! Although this is another 50 mile week, the intensity will probably be less than the previous […]

Training Weekly: London week 13/16

One 50 mile week down, two more to go! Welcome to peak week. And typically, it couldn’t have fallen at a busier time. Work is full on at the minute so I’m doing a ton of overtime, and with a flying visit to Devon planned […]

Training Weekly: London week 12/16

I’m sooooo ready for this week to be better than the last. I’ve been having a HUGE wobble about my goal/dream of a sub 3.30 in London, and I really need to start convincing myself that it’s possible. The next three weeks are going to be […]

Training Weekly: London week 11/16

If you read my review of last week, then you’ll know that I’m starting this one on a huge high, thanks to my new half marathon PB at the Bath half. I need to get back down to earth pronto though, because with the London […]

Training Weekly: London week 10/16

How is it Monday, again?! There are now less than 50 days to go until the London marathon and I’m starting to feel a little bit freaked out, if I’m honest. I think it’s partly because I lost some time last week due to illness. […]

Training Weekly: London week 9/16

Oh, hi week 9! So, after yesterdays 20 miler, the goal of the next two weeks is to sharpen up some half marathon speed ahead of the Bath half in a fortnights time. No races this week, but I do have a couple of key […]

Training Weekly: London week 8/16

Marathon training, week 8! Wowsers! To be honest, I’m still on a bit of a high after racing yesterday. I know it was nothing ground breaking, but I’ve really missed the buzz of a good race. Anyway, onwards and upwards. I’m targeting 3 key sessions […]

Training weekly: London week 7/16

Week 7 and it’s all starting to get a little bit serious, isn’t it? My big session this week is Sunday’s long run. 18 miles including a very long overdue first race of the year, the Bournemouth 10 miler. I can’t wait to be back […]
