Two weeks in 

So I have a coach, you already know that.

2 weeks in & ive never been as motivated to run.

Today summed things up, Facebook sent me a memory reminder thing… I hate them in general, as much as I may write at times, I generally write about others and talking about achievements isn’t always top of my agenda.

2 years ago I took 3rd male at the inaugural White Star Running Dark Ox 10km night race. I still didn’t put much emphasis on training and would suffer. This result was an anomaly.

But I podiumed.

Fast forward 2 years, and in the previous two weeks I’ve run over 80 miles in training. Last year I ran 300 miles over the course of the year, or to put it in perspective 6.25 miles a week on average…

Last week I ran 50 miles. The last time I did that was for the Lakeland 50 mile ultra in July last year. A race, nothing to do with training.

I feel focused, strong, I can where I will be progressing. I have a new confidence & yet, I realise this is a long term project.

Give it a year and I’ll be able to see in real terms where I’ve progressed.

I’m in it for the long game, there’s no such thing as a quick fix.
