Zoe’s London Marathon - part 2

February 04, 2008 - Zoe Tomlins

I'm feeling all enthusiastic and motivated this week as I went to the London Marathon seminar for Golden Bond place runners on sunday. They gave us all loads of tips on training, nutrition, avoiding injuries and fundraising. It was really exciting watching the footage of last year's marathon and being told what to expect on the day! I went out and did 6 miles in the sunshine this morning and felt rather inspired by it all!

Done some good training sessions this week, including a 7 miler with 3 miles at threshold pace which was a good challenge. I am also feeling quite proud of my black toenail, which I got from running downhill too fast the other night, it's made me feel like a proper marathon runner!

Feeling slightly nervous about the Brands Hatch Half Marathon this sunday... It'll be my first experience of a half marathon and apparently it's pretty hilly. Ah well, onwards and upwards!
