In April 2011 I ran the London Marathon and raised £2600 for Asthma UK. It was a 'once in a lifetime' experience...or so I thought. Bravely (or stupidly) I'm doing it again, and this blog will chart my progress while I train for my second London Marathon. Come with me on my journey towards the big day. Here I go...again!

Sitting down...slowly and carefully

Did I mention yesterday that I hadn't done an exercise DVD for a while and might ache a bit today?
I underestimated...big time.
Oh boy do I ache!
I went out for my planned 3 mile run this morning in the hope that it would ease my muscles a bit, but sadly it seemed to have the opposite effect. I've spent the afternoon walking around like John Wayne, and getting up and down stairs is a slow and painful process.
At least I got to try out my new shoes and socks on my run, and am pleased to report that they're perfect. I managed to dodge all the puddles to keep them clean, only for the dog to tread on my foot when I got home and leave a muddy paw print across the laces.
Now...what to do tomorrow morning? A run, or a 40 minute Super Body workout with Davina McCall?
Or maybe a lie in....?


  1. Do you find these workout DVD's any good?lol

  2. I think they're great! I started using them when the children were little, and I hadn't got the time or money to join a gym.
    They're a great way to do exercise, but it's good to have a variety so you don't get bored.
    Some are better than others. I've just invested in a Davina McCall one, so will see how I get on with that.
