Blog: Heads Up!
03 December 2014
The journey continues
My training for the London Marathon is going really well, and I'm currently feeling very positive. I ran 9.5 miles on Sunday, which is a pretty big achievement for someone who couldn't run at all a couple of months ago.
As well as helping me feel fit and healthy, another positive side effect of my marathon training is that I now seem to be able to eat whatever I like without putting on weight! In truth I'm eating lots as I'm always feeling hungry.
Running has completely taken over my life – so much so that I'm now planning my life around my running rather than vice versa. I've also discovered that hangovers and running do not mix – I found that out the hard way, and it's a mistake I certainly shan't be making again!
In terms of preparation for the marathon distance, I'm planning to build up to running a half-marathon in February by adding a couple more miles to my current distance. I'm trying to avoid doing too much too soon, but I am already at the stage where I get a bit twitchy if I haven't run for a day or two!
Should you wish to, you can support me in my marathon journey by donating to my JustGiving page. With your donation we will be able to carry on raising awareness of plagiocephaly and brachycephaly and supporting families with the cost of treatment.
