Marathon Training has started

So legs are working – conditioning has started – bring on DCM2016

Onto week two of my marathon training. it all about condition the body at the moment so on easy 2 and 4 mile runs 4 times a week. Still missing a sponsor however for a decent GPS running watch  but hoping to get something tied up soon.

I had Dylan out with me last week and he was great to run with although the youth in him was running way too fast. but he did 3 miles off the bat and then went back out to play with barley a sweat broken.

Back on my running diet of mainly crackers and Tune Fish on a daily basis with a decent meal for dinner and oat porridge for breakfast. already seeing the benefits of this as spent a few weeks prior to xmas eating rubbish. Slimmed down and feel more refreshed already so its a good start.

Now onto more running tomorrow/wednesday/friday and sunday and hope the bones and muscles remain intact.

 I so hope you can join me on this journey…..
