Flashback Friday : London Marathon 2013..



It was nearly 2 years ago when I ran my first marathon. London Marathon in April 2013.

Nothing much as changed since then. I still eat to much sugar and don't run as much as I should do!!

Eek trying to change things now though! My first marathon I cried a lot. My second a little. This year I will be watching from the sofa as I was not lucky this year to get a place. Or maybe I was lucky as I did not have to train up,lol..
.

How much did I cry? 

This much!!
  • I cried when I left my husband at the train station to go to the start of the London Marathon.
  • I cried when I was all alone at the start of the London Marathon.
  • I cried when I realised I was doing my first marathon.
  • I cried when the marathon started.
  • I cried when children in the street wanted to high five me for running.
  • I cried when I got to 13 miles and my knees went.
  • I cried when I realised I had to do another 13 miles with knee pain.
  • I cried when I had 2 miles to go.
  • I cried when I had 1 mile to go.
  • I cried when I did it in 5 hours 12 mins approx.
  • I cried when I met my family at the end.
  • I have had a great day honest!!
Have you ran a marathon? Did you cry after a race?

My London Marathon Story...


The mind is a very powerful tool. It can talk you out of things you like and love to do just because it wants to. It can also make you do things you never thought were possible!!

What I Wore : Parents Evening ...


One Monday I did it!!!

I did my first 20 miles run getting ready for London Marathon.


 I knew something was not quite right with me feeling weak and dizzy at 14 miles but knew I had to do 20.

After running around the block for the last 6 miles I finished my run at 20.01 miles which took me all morning, well 3 hours 47 minutes or something like that. Next day I woke up full of cold and with a really bad sore throat....

Needless to say I have given up on my run streak that lasted since Christmas, had lots of sweet things and a few pot noodles. Feeling slightly better today I had to stop feeling sorry for myself and get ready for parents evening...


Outfit -
  • Top-Asda
  • Skirt-Primark
  • Tights-Primark
  • Shoes-Primark
  • Bracelets- cutey

And yes good school reports all around :):):)
