Badger Dave's New York Marathon Diary

Hi, my name is Dave and along with my brother and a group of about 20 other runners, we will be taking part in the New York Marathon.

My goal is to complete this run in under 4 hrs although my personal best is 4, 26 which I achieved on June 11th in the Edinburgh Marathon.

The weather was unbelievably hot and probably stopped me recording a quicker time, although despite the pain I felt at the finish I really enjoyed myself.

I am quite new to this training blog so not sure what to put in just yet so please bear with me.

My training went well leading up to Edinburgh but a stubborn blister on the underside of my toe seems to have grown attached to me and doesn't want to go, meaning I have had to restrict my runs to 5 or 6 miles only.

My work as a milkman keeps me ticking over and a bit of swimming in between stops me from becoming too rusty.

 Hopefully from next Monday 1st July I can resume full training again.
