I keep finding reasons on why I shouldn’t start my training,or I keep changing the milestone and saying I’ll start it after this event orthat holiday. The problem is the more I do this… the closer we will get toBrighton Marathon and I won’t have completed any training with a possibility ofbeing in even worse shape than I am now.
So on Saturday I decided that I need to stop putting it all off. I need to lace up my trainers and just get outside. Once I have bitten that first bullet then the rest should come naturally straight after… well that is the theory anyways. I decided the first step would be to have a look through all of the information I have been sent so far and start coming up with a plan of action for training and fundraising for Cancer Research UK.
I have also decided that I am going to be posting a weeklypost here to update those who want to keep up to date with my training and alsomy fundraising. You will see these on a Tuesday and will be part of a new miniseries called ‘Charity Tuesday’. I started doing this when I was training forthe London Marathon and it helped me to keep focused on training as I knew Ineeded to report what I was getting up to and how it was all going. If there isanything in particular you would like to see here please let me know!
I know I am going to have to make changes to many aspects ofmy lifestyle but I know the end result will be worth it. One of the main areasI will need to focus on changing and improving is definitely my diet so that mybody gets the right nutrition in order to be able to train properly.
I know that I am going away to Poland a week on Friday so itmay be difficult to train and keep stay eating healthy whilst I am there.However this isn’t going to put me off and I am still going to keep trying tomake the right changes and choices along the way, I guess a small step in theright direction is better than not taking any step at all!
Hopefully I will see you all back here next week and I will let you know how the first week of training has gone!
