Quite a lot has happened since the last post and although Brentwood didnt happen due to a combination of a business trip to Turkey (10 hours of flights and only 6 daytime hours n the country) and a chest infection the week before the race all other events are a GO!!!!
Start of October saw my entry for a 5th London Marathon confirmed, although Mandy wasnt sucessful more to her relief than dissappointmen i means that i have another great race to do next year.
At the start of November i entered the ballot for the Grand Union Canal Race (www.gucr.co.uk), and on the 9th had my place confirmed for the race that starts on 25th May next year. This is a 145 mile single stage race from Birmingham to London, and one i treid few yers ago, but made the mistake of training at a different pace to my actual race pace - not something i will do this time.
Training plans are in place, and incorporate the London Marathon and Country to Capital race in January and i have already contacted a couple of companies to see if they will sponsor me as i raise money for both Cure Parkinson's Trust and the National Autistic Society - both charities that are close to me and friends of mine!
This blog will now be a weekly event as training has increased and as i get closer to the big event i should be hitting 70 miles per week (and i have to find time to work as well)
Update next week and hopefully news of a major sponsor!!
