London 2013.Here we go again.

I have a place in the 2013 Virgin London Marathon!! This is my second and LAST marathon. I'm raising funds for The British Liver Trust in memory of my stepdad Mike. He was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2011 and passed away after only 6 weeks.

My last marathon report.

  So almost a week in already folks! Cannot believe that after all that training I'm still smiling at that medal! My legs were pretty sore two days after but now they are back to normal and I've had plenty sleep lol This is definitley my last Marathon. ...

It's over and I got a shiny m...

  Sitting on the train back to Scotland devouring a bacon sarnie. Crossed the finish line in 6 hrs 07 . 12 mins faster than last time. i don't do fast running so I'm really happy that I got a better time for my last marathon. I really can't do it again....

Here we go,here we go!!

A sad end to the birthday

A lovely birthday day tinged with sadness when I heard about the Boston Marathon last night. Makes me all the more determined to get across that finish line on Sunday. Nothing more to say. RIP to those whose lives were destroyed.

I'm excited for everyone!!!!

Whoooopppp!!!   The last week calls for a change of colour!!! We are nearly there and I could throw up!! I'm beyond hyper today. All the running has come together and here I am 8 days away from the Virgin London Marathon 2013. I did a little speed sessi...

Here comes the sun...

  What a fab sunny day in Perth today. Bit of blue sky and plenty sun. First time in training I needed to drop off the jacket. Plan called for 13 miles today but I couldnt face it and did 10. I still feel Im recovering from my 20 miles and my knee was ...

What a difference a few days ...

Awoke this morning to blue sky and sunshine and the daunting 20 miler of my training plan. I was trying some new gels as well so a bit nervous about being crippled with stomach cramps. I also adopted the run walk thing which worked out really well. Befo...

The end is in sight and I'm g...

I cannot take much more of this weather. Today was half marathon distance in minus temperature,gale force wind and snow. Mr Garmin wasn't behaving and didn't register the first mile or so. Once he was sorted I headed into the wind only to realise that I...

When is it Spring?

Snowing again. Missed my long run at the weekend due to family gatherings which are few and far between these days. Had a lovely time and it was nice to relax. However my marathon head is back on and ready to get in these last few weeks. 4 runs this wee...

It's snowing again...

Come on. I have 15 miles today and I wake up to a whiteout. Granted it has stopped now but it's absolutely FREEZING. I plan to run 7.5 miles out and then back to home. That way my husband can come and drop off supplies if needed...like a bacon roll and...

It's getting closer!!

 Yikes!   I'm getting excited and nervous!! Managed my four runs last week. According to plan I had a 12 miler on Sunday which was going okay until mile 11 when I was hit with the stomach cramps. I'm blaming it on the silly SIS gel that I took. I'd forg...

Whats up with the blogs?

I keep trying to post and its saves them as drafts.   Anyhoo. Not much running this week.Needed a little break. Have a bit of a sniffle but I'll do my long run tomoroow.   Not much else happening lol   Happy running x  

I'm fading.......

So where are we on the plan?  Well long run of 11 miles on Saturday was actually going really well until mile 10 and then I faded into a crawl. I was running to a friends house so only one way and I had a water bottle with me and an energy bar. I hadnt ...

Sooo tired

Took longer to recover from 10 miles than I thought! A recovery run on Tuesday and then a postponed run today makes for a tired Susie. Running is fine it's just when you have that thing called life that seems to pop up all the time it all gets in the wa...

How to beat the mental demons!!

Urgh, long run today was 9 miles although I went for 10. It was going okay until the rain came on and it was freezing cold.I had a few peaks and troughs during the run.One minute I felt really good and excited and then I was like "What am I doing??"  It...

I'd like a longer weekend ple...

Never enough hours in the day for what I want to do lol. Looking forward to my long run tomorrow.Lets just see where I end up. Had to cut short a run this week due to a migraine which was a bit pants but managed a little speed session. It was actually a...

The run today will be a walk.

How can you possibly hurt yourself when you are sleeping?? Well it seems I can. Woke up this morning with my shoulder blade killing me. Everytime I take a breath it hurts  I was going to abandon the long run as I dont think my shoulder could take the ja...

Todays run will be interestin...

I love a rest day

Oh it's good!   No major pains after yesterdays long run.Still very chuffed about it.Double figures is a mental thing for me and I feel happier now that I've done it. Spent yesterday getting my JustGiving page up and running and had my first donation. w...

Well it snowed

but only a little. Hurrah!! So after a girly night on Friday involving Gary Barlow and thousands of screaming women up in Aberdeen I had a lovely relaxed day on Saturday in preparation for todays LSR. And of course it was snowing when I got up.Boo hiss....

Stay away snow please

I really don't need any snow tomorrow for my long run.   Enough said   Goodbye

Good week for me

With 2 sick children I still managed to get out for 3 runs. Just back from 7.5 miles and feel surprisingly good !  After the indulgences of Christmas I'm craving fruit and veg now which is great.All my energy is slowly creeping back in. The run was pret...

Happy New Year. Yipee

Well that's the first run of the New year done. 4 miles today which was also the first one after the wheezy lungs. It was a bit tough to be honest and I'm sure I sweated Kettle chips along the way. But it was a nice feeling to have done it since it's be...
