I made it - just about

I started my training for Race for Life after work yesterday and I was quite shocked at my level of fitness. I must admit I got a bit cocky telling the girls at work that 5k would be a piece of p*ss. I only managed to run for about 4 minutes which was actually broken up by stopping at the local supermarket (which I didn't realise was so close), putting my laces back in my trainer twice and picking half a dead fly out of my eye. That was the last straw for me so I decided to call it a day and walk back home. After that measley bit of running I am now in agony (forgot to stretch when I got home). After that feeble attempt I would just like to salute Sarah G and anyone else taking part in the Flora London Marathon this year and say I am sooo not worthy.


  1. Bear in mind that every journey begins with a single step. Just remember to warm up first! You can do it :o)

  2. Believe me when I say if I can do the London Marathon then ANYONE can do it! Some people, make that a lot of people, walk the whole thing!
    Not too freaked out I only have about 2 weeks to go!!

  3. Karen - Thanks for the words of encouragement. I really need them. Im building up to it slowly so I should be OK.

    Sarah - I'm sure I couldn't do it. Honestly. I am sooo unfit and training for this has proved it. Good luck. I shall be rooting for you!
