Sam’s Running Diary – Training for the London Marathon Week 1

Week 1

Well after a lazy and not particularly healthy December, this week has certainly kicked me back to reality!

Back to work and back to training all in one day luckily our Intermediate Training guide was relatively kind on the first day with no distance limit, just a 30 minute run at a medium pace on Monday which squeezed into my lunch break perfectly.

Mid week I hit a bit of a crisis however – the snow! Undeterred I carried on however and completed the latter part of my week 1 training programme by running along the beach (mainly to avoid the super slippery pavements) and have to say it was actually really enjoyable and much less treacherous!
