So Friday 15th January marked 100 days until the 2016 London Marathon & how is my training & weight loss going.. erm not so well
Well that changes HERE!
I have said it a million times before, this time I will lose weight, this is my final fresh start, blah blah blah
But this is really happening, there are no more third chances I want to make it to the start and finish line of the London Marathon this year & while I feel oddly positive about my lack of running (I think the rest has done my leg a lot of good), its amazing how I spent the whole of last year wanting to run & then as soon as I got the all clear to run I suddenly couldn’t be bothered, I think there is still that voice in my head reminding me that my leg isn’t 100% healed which makes me nervous about putting in to many miles before the big day, but touch wood pretty much no running for 8 weeks has made the only 2 runs I have done niggle free so fingers crossed we may finally be injury free.
My weight concerns me, I am almost 2 stone heavier than when I ran my first Half Marathon in 2013, I am not happy at my current weight, so why can’t I do it?
The simple answer is I am greedy, I love food, I loved my slimmer body but apparently I loved food more, especially chocolate, I keep reading about how sugar isn’t good for me but I like it & honestly every day is a battle to say no to my sweet best friend
But I know the marathon will be easier the lighter I am so I am resurrecting the 100 Day Challenge & I am going to try my best to be 24.5lbs lighter by 24th April, I will update you every Wednesday with a new blog post series I will be calling Marathon Watch
