I am now one week into my Edinburgh Marathon training and I must say, I am feeling ever so good. This will be my 4th marathon and I will use all my running experience from the previous 3 marathons to make this the best one yet.
I am adapting a basic marathon training plan and mixing it up with gym strengthening sessions, where I will focus on strengthening my core muscles, my quads and my arms. I have built up this training knowledge since completing my first marathon in 2007 and I feel I really do know what works for me and what I need to improve upon.
I will keep you posted on developments.
I know I talk a lot about doing what you love on here, and road running is something I really love doing, it makes me feel so good. Personally I like to tie my running outside with a marathon goal because it keeps me so focused and aligned with my health goals and achievements.
I’m really looking forward to this one.
What do you love doing, what makes you feel so good?
Hold onto that feel good feeling, it will help you to maintain your inner happiness and improve your general wellbeing.
Here’s to a happy, healthier you.
