"How is your training going?"
I get asked this a lot. I have a big mouth and a lot of my friends know that I am running the London Marathon this year, which is a good thing of course. I’m often faced with this question though so let me answer it today. First we can look at my training plan. As you can see from the above, I run 5 times a week, swim once a week and do nothing on a Friday! Perfect life! It’s not...

I went for my first swim last night!
What I did is below, this book is great because I can take it to poolside with me! Buy it here. It was made for triathletes…I just keep on losing my count when swimming though, so having a plan right next to me does help! First swim of the year in the bag, feels good. Runkeeper.

Are More People Running In London Now?
This has been on my mind a lot lately. I run through the City and notice so many people doing the same thing. It makes me wonder whether more people are running now or am I just noticing them more now because I run? I've been running steadily for more than a year and it just seems like more of us are on the road. I mostly see people out in the morning which makes sense I suppose, I love my bed too much though to run before work.
I know there's a lot of factors to consider, travel prices, the media's focus on celeb bodies, the Olympics and so on. Ideally I would hope that there are more people running in London and that they're making a lifestyle change!
That's the first week of training done!
It consisted of some cross training, two 3 mile runs with a 5 mile run inbetween them on Wednesday. A rest on Friday and then a 5 mile pace run on Saturday followed by a gentle 10 miles on New Years Day. It was a week that saw me cover 26.7 miles on the road running. Interesting how my first week of training has me cover that distance that I’m going to be working so hard to get to in a...
