Paris Half Marathon Training Diary
As I’m sure I’ve mentioned a gazillion times at this point, I’m training for the Paris Half Marathon which takes place on March 6th. I’ve been training pretty hard since November and it’s around this point that it just gets really hard. You’re increasing your distances, your body hurts, you feel sluggish, tired, motivation is lacking and, in my case, your right toenail may have randomly decided to fall off after a training session – in general, running just ain’t seeming as glamourous as it once was.
But alas, thanks to the 20-strong team of Wonder Women that is Team Bangs on the Run, I have a fantastic support network. Not to mention all my lovely readers and Twitter followers who are like my own personal cheering squad.
As of today, it is just seven weeks to race day. Team Bangs on the Run have raised £2675 so far for our chosen charity Refuge, who help women and children escape domestic violence. We’re trying to reach £10K. Pretty please, during these next few weeks, while we’re training harder than we ever have and fighting through our exhaustion, please donate any penny you can – it really helps to keep us motivated.
