Marathon entered... must now train!!

Just a quick post to say that I went for a run today. I have applied ( again) for the Virgin London Marathon 2010 and thought that maybe I should get out there!! I am playing tennis once a week for an hour, football once a week for an hour and now I hope to be back running.

Today was good. My back feels fine so far and my achilles were a little stiff, but loosened up and felt fine. I have stretched well and am now heading for the shower!!I am eating very sensibly in the hope of losing some weight. I have put on over a stone ( 14 pounds) since the marathon in 2008 so I need to get back in shape.My poor old legs won't take this extra blubber!!

So, all well. Just need, as ever, to keep doing it!!

Hi Sarah,

It is so hard to get back into the routine of running, isn't it! Well done on entering the Marathon, I don't think I could ever face training for that sort of distance again.

I, too, have put on a stone - that should be enough encouragement to get us out there!

Good luck with your training,
