Marathon Training Begins…
So, yesterday 31st April 2012, I signed up for the London Marathon. As standard as this may seem to a lot of people, any one who knows me would probably have a little giggle at this. At school, I was quite good at running short distance - my 100m sprints were the fastest in my year. I’ve recently started running again and am safe to run about 3 miles now. That means over the next year I need to add 23 further miles to my current pace.
I do however, have one slight issue. I’ve been told I run in true Phoebe Buffay style. This ladies and gentleman is me and you know what? I don’t even care. I’m going to run those 23 miles, arms and legs in every direction and i’m going to kick butt whilst doing it…
Or I could just work on my technique.
Just had my body fat measured at the gym. 24.8%. 0.8% away from athletic. So close! Come to mumma!
By may 19th I will have dropped that 0.8% and will be happy to celebrate my 21st!
I squat. I lunge. I cycle, row and run. I swim. I eat well but my legs are not changing at all. Ive always had thick legs. Chunky thighs and big calves but no matter what I do they don’t change :( any tips?
i have five weeks
