New York Marathon Training – Week 9 & Week 10

Life has been hectic, but training must go on. I have missed sessions, but I’ve done as much as I can, and that’s all I can do!

Week 9


3.1 miles at run club consisting of hills, 400m, 800m and steps! Can you believe no picture as I left my phone at work!

TEMPO RUN ๐Ÿ˜ฑ can't say I was looking forward to this. Busy day at work, hectic past few days, but I got out there and got it done! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ . . Was so cold at school today and even when I got home, so full running tights on and long sleeve running top – ended up hot sweaty mess. Wasn't so cold outside after all! #loverunning . . . . #Runner #Run #Running #rungirlrun #thisgirlruns #runslikeagirl #girlthatruns #runhappy #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #runnersofig #igrunners #thisgirlcan #ukrunchat #runmummyrun #womensrunning #worlderunners #training #halfmarathon #garmin #lovemygarmin #fitblogsuk #happyrunner #whyirun #tcsnycmarathon #nycmarathon #NewYorkMarathon

You can tell that my runs are now getting to the business end of training, as my photographs are pretty poor. No action shots as I can’t stop to take them, and during the run i’m concentrating too much to remember – this must be a good sign right?

Only 6 weeks to go, and it’s about this time that I wish I had completed every session, stretched more, completed more strength work…. The usual. Ballot results from London will be happening in a week or so; maybe if I get a place, I’ll actually do all of the above! Or maybe I’ll blog about wishing I had done it AGAIN!

Anyone else repeat the same mistakes over and over?
