It was a magazine….

It was from the London Marathon people and it said……..





The London Marathon

So…. once again the madness begins. I’d convinced myself that I didn’t want to do it next year but I couldn’t stop thinking about it all day today (I hadn’t realised until this morning that we’d hear today!). The minute I saw what it said on the cover of the magazine I could feel the excitement welling up inside. My stomach started flipping over, my face started grinning uncontrollably and I had to resist the urge to shout out loud! I had to first break the news to my poor hubby that I actually WAS going to do itΒ despite saying that I wouldn’t πŸ˜‰

I was going to post about my club run and my cycling but that will have to wait until tomorrow now as I need to go and research marathon plans!

    Exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚
    Andy applied last year before we actually did Stockholm, and has spent the rest of the year hoping to not get in! He got the rejection magazine yesterday and was mighty relieved.

    HI Rose – training plans:

    I dont know if these might help: The runners world smart coach is on there, and the December Training plan might be of interest? Running 3 times a week, long for 3 weeks increasing distance of long run each week, then a recovery week if I remember correctly. 14 week lochaber one might be of interest too.
