Weeks 17 & 18 - Transport - S...

This morning I was supposed to have run the Whole Foods Market Breakfast Run, a 16 mile race in the beautiful setting of Kingston-Upon-Thames. Sadly, it was not to be. In theory I could have made it to the race, and during the week I was looking forward...

Week 16 - Race - Gels - Support

Yesterday was the Victoria Park Harriers Club 20 mile race. The marathon is now just over a month away and this is probably the longest training run I will do before attempting 26.2 miles. I was slightly concerned about my ability to complete this race ...

Weeks 14 & 15 - Lost - Advent...

Three weeks have gone by since I last wrote a piece for my blog. I have therefore decided to write two pieces in one day to make up for it. Firstly, I would like to recap. Previously, I wrote about the stitch that caused me to stop running just shy of 1...

Weeks 12 & 13 - Ramble - Twis...

Almost three months ago I set out with the intention of making this a weekly blog; however, over the last six weeks it has become more of a bi-weekly ramble. I have let the blog and myself down like a feeble balloon. The problem is that I don't feel I h...

Weeks 10 & 11 - Time - Injury...

As I write this, there are only 9 and a half weeks left till the day of the marathon. A scary thought. Not the most scary thought, obviously. There are far more horrific things taking place in the world right now that puts my meagre concerns on a much l...

Weeks 8 & 9 - Highlights - Co...

Weeks 8 and 9 couldn't have differed more in terms of training. Week 8 was a personal highlight. If my calculations are correct, I clocked up 27 miles of running altogether and managed a brief gym session on the Monday as well. Admittedly, this does inc...

Week 7 - Diet - Hydration - Fool

It's a new year and a new blog entry. In total, this will be my fifth blog piece on here - how exciting! Whilst that statement might not seem especially impressive, I can promise you that strobes, flares and fireworks are being set off to commemorate th...

Weeks 5 & 6 - Christmas - Res...

The Christmas period is known for indulgent excess. A time when lots of tasty, unhealthy, calorific foods will be consumed. I am happy to report that I took part in this tradition. Running has featured, although perhaps not as much as it should have, bu...

Week 4 - Shopping - Gadgets -...

The fourth week of writing, another week in the life of a novice runner. My last piece concentrated mainly on self-inflicted wounds, unhealthy eating and drinking habits, and how I should better prepare for my runs. However, this week's entry will be up...

Weeks 2 & 3 - Go-Karting - Pa...

I have already managed to defeat the point of a writing a weekly blog by merging weeks 2 and 3. I could lie and say this is because my lifestyle has been too hectic, that I've simply not had the time to write about my rich and varied experiences, but th...

Week 1 - Running - Snooker - ...

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. A blog dedicated to my London Marathon attempt next year. I can't promise that this will be written well or very interesting, I'm unlikely to be in a position to share any exciting running tips or tricks, I won't b...
