With the London Marathon on Sunday and Cardiff having just hosted a half marathon, I stand in awe of those runners who can go that distance. I then found out that The British Heart Foundation has an ongoing event for May to do a marathon distance over the course of a month. This really appealed to me and I signed up not knowing if I could run 26.2 miles in a months.
But between C25K that I'm doing with my daughter, smaller runs around where I live and the odd Parkrun, I was astounded to find I'd clocked up that distance in 17 days! I'm shocked.
Try keeping a record of how far you go, whether you run, walk or both, and you might find your doing a lot more than you thought and really motivating 😊
