It's pretty exciting times - I have registered to run the Loch Ness marathon on 3rd October!!
Being my first EVER marathon I don't really know what I am getting myself in for.... but I know it's the next step from always running half-marathons. And there's nothing wrong with half-marathons by the way - I LOVE them!! They are the perfect distance but the thought of running that whole distance again if I was running a full marathon has always made me feel sick... but now I am doing it! Going all the way baby!
I think the thing that I am most looking forward to on the run is the scenery!! The race reviews are all about the beauty of the surroundings: Loch Ness and the Highlands all wrapped up into one run - awesome! So I'm hopeful that maybe this will help take my mind off the pain?? Here's hoping...
It's now less than 11 weeks away, I'm pretty confident I can do this. I've got a good training schedule from Runner World website and am aiming for a sub 3:45.
Training's going well and I'm looking forward to hopefully losing the last couple of kg's of post pregnancy fat!
I like the way when your body becomes lighter you run faster, and the more you run the lighter your body becomes. It's a great partnership.
