Unleash the battering Rhino

Posted on: 11 Mar 2016

I've lost a lot of fitness since I last posted. Eeek! The powers that be threw a tough and delibilating cold at me just after I had a tough tussle with an Applied Medical Knowledge examination to boot. Six weeks before the race and I have just got my running shoes back on (heck, I've only just got out the house).

I burst through my front door and licked the cold spring air. I made my way out through the concrete jungle to my local paradise, my local park. I found myself coughing out the very last Rhinovirus agents out of my upper respiratory tract. My heart and lungs said hello and with a little resistance got back into the torture chamber that is my thorax whilst running. Also, much to my dismay I had a little belly to rest on when I found myself out of breath around the hills in the park... Oops! How am I going to find my fitness again? Well, well my colleague that's the right question -> With only six weeks to go until the marathon I am going to have to step up my running and core training big time. I can see The Mall looming long round the corner. I want to smash it. I want to do all of you that have and will support me proud!! :D So get ready for a lot more blog posts and a lot more effort and cold mornings!! My nasty cold is behind me and I now have a big month ahead of me in terms of medical school work, running and fundraising. 

Keep up to date with my suffering here and give me the strength to fight whatever nature throws at me by sponsoring me at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/joshruns4brains
