More than just a Beast from the East

Hello All,

How are we all? Well here I am with another blog to update you of the vigorous training that is turning me into a Terminator that will run 26.2 miles at the end of April (specifically, the Robert Patrick type on from T2). Well I haven’t turned into a Terminator sadly, as with constant work/rehearsals and then the beast from the East (not Bam Bam Bigelow – again, if you get that reference, I love you) my training schedule has gone flying out of the window and to make matters worse for the first time since September ‘16, I have gone up a waist size! Uh Oh, Spaghetti-O, that wasn’t in the plan.

Blog No.4 – Why the NDCS?

Hello everyone. A much quicker blog this time around. How are we all? I hope you’re well. Running this past fortnight has been ok. Got my mojo back slightly. By slightly I mean, mentally I can plough through stuff. Done a few 9+ mile jogs which is nice and a few good old 6 milers. Woop Woop. Now to find time to get in a few 11-12 milers before the Warwick Half Marathon in early March (editors note – I wrote this a few days ago, as you read this I did a big 11 miler yesterday. Good times). Anyway – I thought I would do a nice blog about why I am running 26.2 miles for the National Deaf Children’s Society (in hopefully less than 5 hours) in April. There is a significant reason why so I thought I would blog about it.

Blog No.3 – I got 99 problems and a jog ain’t one (Well, it kinda is!)

This is a long overdue bloody blog! Like 2 months over due! I am very sorry. I aimed for them to be every fortnight and sadly life has been a little crazy and I haven’t had the opportunity & head-space. Right now, I am sat on a train taking me back to the Midlands from London so it’s the perfect time to tell you about my less than triumphant return to jogging, nearly crying mid jog and Shakespeare (kind of). Also – there are now 99 days until the big day! Uh Oh, Spaghetti Oh!

Blog No.2 – The Injury list!

After the personal sentimental warbling’s of the last blog – this is my first proper training blog. How exciting! I can tell you all about where I have run, how far I have run and all that stuff so here goes, so far I have done . . . . Absolutely nothing. Zero. Zilch. Zip. Nadda. Nothing. Nowt. Bugger all.

Blog No.1 – Why am I doing this?

So, I am running the London Marathon?

I thought I would do a blog from here until April and keep you up to date with the hilarity of me attempting to jog 26+ miles. It’s a rather daft idea really so I thought I would answer the question that I am being asked most regularly, which is – ‘What the bloody hell are you doing that for’?
