It's been a little while since I was here. I've been focusing on my weight loss over the last few weeks so been spending my forum time allowance on My Fitness Pal, sorry C25k buddies
So I signed up to do the British Heart Foundation MyMarathon, which is to run a total of 26.2 miles over the course of May and today is May!
It's rather poignant that I'm doing it now; my husbands Uncle passed away from a heart attack on Friday and he was like a second Dad to him during his teenage years after his own Dad died (also from heart disease).
I can still only really get out on weekends due to work and home commitments, and I have one weekend away in May so my plan is to attempt (ACHIEVE) the 26.2 in 3.75 mile runs which will take 7 runs, that should enable me to get it all in without overdoing it. The maximum I've ever run so far is 5k, I'm not used to miles but I think 3.75 miles works out at about 6k. I hope I can do it! I have to do it!
So despite having a bit of a cold, i'll be heading out for my first session later this afternoon. Wish me luck!
And cheeky though it is, if anyone wants to make a small donation (£1 would be fabulous) the link to my fundraising page is here: mymarathon.everydayhero.com...
