Halfway Review – 8 weeks to go….gulp!

Well, we’ve reached the halfway point in the plan. To be honest at the end of 2011 I was a little bit skeptical I’d get there at all – a very stubborn case of plantar fasciitis was refusing to improve, but with some good physio, a bottle of frozen water, lots of stretching, a night splint (also known as the bionic foot) and not over doing the mileage we’ve hit the mid-point.

I’m a bit behind where I wanted to be but considering the constant cold I seem to have had since New Year I’m pretty pleased with my efforts so far. The longer miles don’t seem too onerous, I’m actually enjoying it in a weird sort of way. It’s nice to train with a bit of purpose and not just with the goal of a race. I’ve trained for various events before but this one’s a bit different. Yes, I want to run a marathon and run well, but this time I’m running it for some close friends and it’s that which is keeping me going when the training gets tough. I don’t want to let them down, I want to do them proud – and I will.
