Most things seem to be going well with my marathon training. I’m keeping more or less to the programme in terms of runs and pacing, making a better effort to stretch at the end of runs and eating pretty well.
But what is it with me and these core strength exercises? I’ve missed several of them over the past week or so, including today – I’ll have a go after writing this blog but it’s not ideal doing them late at night.
My legs and hips were aching towards the end of the 14 mile run on Sunday and I clearly need to make more of an effort to do them. Unlike running, which I approach very positively and enjoy, I find the thought of them a little uninspiring – they remind me of all the reasons why I never took up exercising before!
Never mind, there’s still 10 weeks to go, starting now …
Postscript: Just finished them. They’re not that bad. Get over yerself!
