Entering a half-marathon!

Post by Eleanor on Sun Jan 25, 2015 8:02 pm

running running running

Last week, I mentioned to my friends at uni that I wanted to make use of the university gym. One of the girls FB messaged me earlier to ask if I was still interested, and would I mind being her training partner for a marathon? Five minutes later... Not only am I signing up for gym membership; I'm also running the half-marathon with her! laughing

I used to love cross country and running at school, but I haven't done anything like that for a while now. Getting right into training this week, hopefully! happy It's for charity, so why not?

Set up a Just Giving page, and we'll see what you can get! Rather you than me, though! laughing

Wishing you Good Luck Eleanor - 13 miles of road running is not a light undertaking, build up to it gradually!

The charity part is covered by the entrance fee - it isn't a sponsored one, sadly! sad It's the Every Day Hero marathon.

I have 97 days to get sorted. Joining the gym in the morning, as well as going for morning runs every day! happy Plus sit-ups, crunches and planking.

And no, the parents have not been supportive! sad But I will do it and prove them wrong! happy

That's a bit silly and outdated.

Luckily, mum's card worked, so I transferred the money over to her so that she could (very kindly) do it for me. happy So I take back what I said about the lack of support! (Love you mum!) tongue

About to go on my first run!

I am being supportive! I just want you to be fully aware of how much stamina you're going to have to build up in a relatively short time. It won't be easy, but good for you!

Well, right now I'm dying! laughing Joined the gym today and spent two-and-a-half relentless hours in there after uni. My favourite was the treadmill! So much fun! laughing
