First mountain

I love mountains and it’s my dream to run up as many as poss.

So- I’ve just signed up for the Snowdonia marathon next October. I’m so excited that I’ve got a place and I have nearly a year to get ready.

I’ve also decided that for the first time I will follow a training plan. I’m going to do a 12 week Myasics plan. I’m putting it here so I don’t change my mind!!!

Woohoo

Sky high panthering here we come

I have walked/climbed in Snowdonia for many, many years, ( my post photo is taken climbing above Cwm Glas)..but never running on the mountains. I shall make sure we are at the holiday home and be there to watch the start of the Marathon, on the 27th October!!!

Well done 😁.

If you do all the runs on the plan you’ll be fine. You can switch the sessions about but just do them all It gives you a sense of ‘job done’ once complete as you know the work is done and you’re ready 💪😃

You have a year to train and you’re very strong anyway. This run will suit you down to the ground. Needless to say I am in awe!

I know, I'd read up on it before so I was there at 7am ready to book, I had to wait in a queue for 40 minutes till I got to the front!!

How fantastic! We got married at the foothills of Snowdon and then walked to the summit via the Watkins path, with our guests! It is a wonderful place. Look forward to reading about your training 😀
