Second Brighton marathon

Have taken a break from the dayjob and some of the ridiculous stresses that came with it at the end of last year – like not being paid for example, that can be a bit stressful! Time for a rest, maybe a complete change of direction.

I now have more time to be getting on with other things, such as training for the next Brighton marathon. I’m putting in roughly one short run (an hour) and one longer run (two hours) a week at the moment. Running into the wind and rain along the seafront is not always a bundle of laughs, but it does get the feel-good chemicals whizzing around the body for a few hours afterwards.

Last year I finished in just over 4 hours. This time round I hope to improve on my personal best of 3 hours 51 minutes, which was at the London marathon in 1997. Am really looking forward to it.

    Another great but very hot day, I finished in 4 hours and 2 minutes. Last year I finished in 4 hours and 3 minutes! Have got a place for 2012, it has to be under 4 hours next time…
