The Abingdon Marathon 20th October 2013

The time has come to stand up and be counted. Over a year ago, I decided that I was going to commit myself fully into racing another marathon. Abingdon in Oxfordshire was the chosen race. Not only is it said to be flat and fast but  unlike the big city marathons, it is limited to just 1100 entrants which means less congestion and more focus on running!

My plan was to train progressively harder over a 23 week period and hope to lose to weight during the final ‘run in’ in order to make running faster at pace more efficient.

I’m inside the last week of training now which involved nothing more than easy running. I have lost about 7lbs now in as many weeks and its time to get serious.

Watch this space……
