I had a go at a new volunteer role at parkrun today…
…and then headed home to get a restful afternoon in before my long run tomorrow.
I’ve been trying to keep my running discussion within my videos, but I will say that marathon training is pretty all-consuming at the moment. If you do it properly, it really does take over your life, and I certainly feel that’s been the case with recent weekends as the long runs have become longer. I am absolutely loving it at the moment, but it is hard work, and I think I will appreciate having a few months off in the summer before long race training starts again for the autumn.
I’ve got a good plan for the long run tomorrow, but in some ways I’m already looking forward to Monday and putting my feet up with a bit of day job work!
