Today I Started Training For The Belfast Marathon 2012
The worst thing about training for a marathon in early summer is all of the hours spent running in the dark, drizzly, pissy weather. I’d far rather run in the sun.
Anyway as some of you may know I ran the Belfast Marathon last year in 5:04 and it was pretty painful.
This time I’m hoping to run it and enjoy it. Not setting a time limit as I did last time and it kinda sucked the fun out of it.
I did my 1st run of the year and it wasn’t a bad one at all. I was going for distance over speed and I finished it feeling pretty strong, even if the weather was pretty dire.
I am surprised by how strong my legs are feeling after taking 3 months on my European Christmas Market tour. I guess I have a lot of shit to burn off and it’s serving as good fuel.
