Now that I’m committed to raising a few quid sponsorship for running the Milton Keynes Marathon I thought an update was required.
Training has been a bit up and down so far. I’m following a 16 week training schedule – of which there are about 9 weeks left. This week so far looks something like this:
- Saturday – Rutland Parkrun – steady run ensuring a Parkrun tourist friend got a PB.
- Sunday – no long run – Saturday involved afternoon drinking, Chinese and ending up in a karaoke bar.
- Monday – 7 steady miles at Rutland Water – very undulating.
- Tuesday – another 7 steady miles at Rutland Water – opposite side of the reservoir – very undulating.
I’ve done a bit of cycling around Rutland Water, but it’s not until you run around it that you realise how hilly it is. I’ve created a course profile, it looks something like this:
That is pretty much where we are at the mo. I’d like to mention again that I am raising a few quid for the Samaritans – so feel free to click here and sponsor.
