2 Weeks down, lots to go!

So that’s the first couple of weeks of the programme completed and no issues so far. Things will start getting serious at the beginning of December!

Training Started…

The training has started and I have completed my initial four runs. The Training Page explains the plan I am using and this will be updated on a regular basis as I progress through it. Only 5 months to go!

Accommodation Booked!

Premier InnnThe Premier Inn Manchester (Salford Quays) Hotel has been booked for the whole of the Marathon weekend. It gets good reviews on Trip Advisor and is close to the start!

A valuable lesson I have learned is that it is of real benefit to arrive at a race location well in advance & to be able to relax without rushing around the day before an event.

Additionally being able to relax after an event and not worrying about needing to be out of hotel rooms is almost as important. Therefore I’ll be travelling up on the Friday and travelling back on the Monday. Why not make an enjoyable weekend of it?!
