I am in training from ‘beginner’ status to run The London Marathon for this wonderful local charity. running does not come easy to me and the discipline or training several times a week and building up the mileage is quite gruelling! I am not aiming to break any speed records but to do my very best and finish the race! Please consider supporting a very worthy cause and encourage all those who volunteer for this project. Many thanks to you all and God Bless You!
Updsate...20th March...Thank you all so much for your most generous support for this great cause. On the 10th of March I experienced a set back with my knee (IT ligament related) at 11 miles (I was aiming for 16 that day). Unfortunately this has slowed me down and I am having to ease back and strengthen my hamstrings with specific exercises every day in order to get back on track. I am seeing an excellent sports osteopath. So the plan is to do what I can and hope and pray that the muscles I need to strengthen sort out very quickly. However I will be planning to get around that marathon whether it be running, walking or crawling.
Update...17th April...Once again a massive thank you to all of you for your supreme support and generosity! 3 days ago I managed to complete 18 miles at an average pace of 11 mins a mile. I know it isn’t all that fast but actually better than expected! So I look forward to the big day now. Just a few shorter runs to go until then xx
Update 30th April...I did it and survived! In 4 hrs 55 which I am happy with. I was able to run most of the course. The crowds kept me moving with their great support. So happy it is done and for raising money for Living Well! Your donations will make a great deal of difference to this charity x
Living Well is a caring community which aims to be a place where people feel accepted, loved, valued
