Completed the run in 2:54 mins
Comments – My knee was exceptionally painful!
Running for (special reason?): not really.
Previous running experience? I have no previous running experience, I have been going to the gym for years though.
Reason for running? Wanted to push myself and give myself a goal to work towards this year – seems like the perfect challenge for me. I’m one of those people that either go 100% or not at all, so I’m hitting training hard now!
Current fitness and plans for training? My fitness/cardio is actually pretty poor – I’ve been going to the gym for a while but generally focus on strength training rather than cardio so I’m finding it hard to keep up. I’m training three times a week, once focusing on strength training for my back and legs to avoid injury and the other two more focused on cardio to get my fitness levels up to where they need to be.
Are you planning to run or train with someone? I’m currently training on my own three times a week, but sometimes am joined by my colleague Katie, but everyone knows the schedule I’m working & I encourage everyone to join me! But I’m an early bird so I go in the mornings before work… not everyone’s cup of tea!
Worries about the marathon: Not being able to finish it! (that won’t happen I’m sure…?!)
