Cake, humps and marathons

This morning I did 4 miles of ‘fartlek’, running hard between street corners, lamp posts or trees, it was amazingly hot.

Today was Macmillan Coffee morning at work and I made these ’99’ cupcakes:- 

My ‘hump’ got bigger this morning when I was in Madam’s school office and discovered three members of the school staff have a place in VLM- THREE!!! thats just not fair.

Anyway last night in a fit of madness and humpiness I registered for the Milton Keynes marathon, so whilst watching Carla do her 26.2 miles I will be thinking oh **** I have to do that next week!!!!

Off to check out which plan I should use.

P.S. Skechers pro speed trainers arrived today, they are very bright, smell great (shame that wont last) and are very bouncy (hope that lasts) slightly concerned I will fall over on my inaugural run, oh well, least that will make an amusing blog entry!

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    OMG that cupcake looks AMAZEBALLS!! WANT!!! NOW!!!! PLEASE!!! I think you’ll be OK in the shoes – I found the first half a mile hard, then my gait changed a bit, then it felt comfy! And seeing as I fall over on the flip of a coin, am sure you’ll be fine.

    That cupcake looks huge! London may be the marathon everyone wants, but is it a first and does it have a stadium finish? No and no. MK will be great.

    Yayyyy MK here we come!!!

    I’m realistically aiming for between 4 and half and 5 hours (my heart would love to say sub four but my head knows that I’m just not fast enough). How about you?
