The London Marathon Ballot came and went again like a flash. My 3rd attempt was unsuccessful, no 3rd time lucky for me. As is now tradition, I have gone ahead and booked my alternative race, and I have chosen the Asics Greater Manchester Marathon. I have revisited mysics.com for my training plan which says I could complete the race in a jaw dropping 4:26:50! The plan calls for 4 runs a week, and with my run streak still going the rest days I will try and only run 1-2 miles. Please feel free to follow along. Comment below if you do! I also hope to do weekly training posts too. I’ll definitely be posting on my Instagram. Here goes…
Update Nov 2017: I’m excited to announce that I won my running club London Marathon place! It looks like I will now be running 2 Marathons in April next year! So Manchester will be my “long run” for London! I am looking forward to both!
Update Dec 2017: Unfortunately due to the club only receiving 1 entry this year, I will no longer be running the London Marathon. 🙁
