So I am going to run a MARATHON !

I'm a runner baby !
I’m a runner baby !

Yes, some might think me crazy but I am going to run the Dublin marathon in October. Training has begun. It means four days a week are taken up with running. One being a long run on the weekend! I realise it’s a serious business when I ran 12 miles on friday evening. That is the start of some serious mileage ….


I have slightly changed my exercise routine as running the extra day is time-consuming & as mileage increases, there has to be a little give somewhere. So I have dropped my usually 250 sit-ups on the exercise ball everyday along with 30 reverse crunches plus 30 left & right oblique crunches & just do 60 reverse crunches and 30 oblique crunches on the left & right side.

Don’t think I am doing it for fun but it is on my bucket list before the big birthday arrives !!!!! I am certain I will enjoy most parts of the 26.2 miles. It will be a physical & a mental challenge which I look forward to & I know I will never regret doing it. As it will change my Life & knowing only 1% of the population ever run a marathon spurs me on even more.

Marathon Gratitude via @Rachel Steffen I dare you to train for a marathon and not have it change your life!

Follow me on my journey & I will do a post each week on progress, mood, nutrition & any other pieces of info  regarding how my training is going.

This weekend’s 12mile run went very well & I really enjoyed it. If you want a laugh watch the video clip below.

    1. Hi Laura, Thanks so much. Been crazy busy lately and was on holidays for two weeks, but managed two 5k runs while away. Straight back to training now and will do a post as soon as I can on progress so far ! Ease yourself back in gently and you will find the love for running given time. x
