Training for the Paris Marathon… 8.5 miles!

I managed a big run on Saturday – 8.5 miles! This is my longest so far, but I was a bit disappointed to stop and walk at 45 minutes. After about a minute I got back on it, but was frustrating to say the least!

Thank you for your tips about putting vaseline between your toes – not a blister in sight! I’m also very happy with my brand new fluorescent gear – now I might be able to run the 12m home without being hit by a cyclist on the towpath! I’m aiming to run home in the next couple of weeks…

I have baked peanut butter cookies to sell at work today, in an effort to raise funds to support Kidscape. Fingers crossed everyone has a sweet tooth!

Have you run a marathon? Are you training? Have you got any tips for training for a marathon?
