Ey up you lot!! How we all doing?
I haven't much to say about my running since Snowdonia as I haven't done more than about 7 runs in last 2 and a half weeks. I had a bad back the week after but apart from that my only excuse is a lack of motivation and really feeling I needed some down time rather than forcing myself to run every day. I have made the most of it and socialised a lot. I do tend to find a lot of my friends feel neglected through my busy work and training schedule so I have enjoyed seeing everyone.
Next week I intend to get back on the training schedule as I have now entered the Northumbria Coastal Marathon in February and I think it is only about 14 weeks. To be honest I aren't going to push myself too much until after Christmas when I will mostly be focusing on London again. This is really what I wanted to blog about, Christmas and London....
James, my boyfriend, very jammily bagged himself a ballot place for London. First time in the ballot and this will be his first marathon (please don't hate him too much)!! Anyway he hasn't got a running watch as he has only ever really run for fitness before. I know he would like one and I think it is a pretty essential tool when it comes to good marathon training. So this is a Christmas present sorted which is awesome as I have double presents to think of as he inconsiderately has a birthday on 23rd December!
James can be very much lead by style and has said a few times that he likes the look of the Nike Plus, however I have read a few shocking reviews about it. Anyone got any experience of it please? Do I just risk it as he said thatis the one he would get?
What watches do you all use, have used in past and have been unhappy or happy with? I use a Garmin, just the forerunner 10 and find it does the job really well but I think James would prefer more style.
Thanks in advance peeps.
