If my calculations are correct I’m at the halfway point in terms of days to the Marathon. I’ve clocked up 122 miles so far this year with distances being ramped up from now on. Really looking forward to seeing how the next couple of weeks pan out.
I want to start pushing myself a bit more now – niggles permitting. I’ve been taking most of the runs steady recently and although it’s pleasant to run at a gentle pace I don’t think it’s doing much to improve stamina. I’m hoping to up the pace tomorrow on the social run and might also try adding a couple of miles to get closer to 8-10.
Thanks to the core strength work I reckon I must be getting stronger as I’m now doubling the repetitions for several of the exercises compared to when I started. I’m also doing some new ones for hips and glutes.
