Training Plan : Week 2

Week 1 of the Training Plan

I’m running the London Marathon as part of the Reebok Team.  As part of that I get a running coach, Shaun Dixon, who has made me a personal training plan.  It’s very exciting as I’ve never had a tailor made plan before….to be honest I don’t normally follow a plan at all, I draw myself…

Happy New Year : A time for reflection & looking forward

I always like to use the New Year to look back at what has happened in the past year and what I have to look forward to over the coming year.  I thought I’d write a bit about my year of running and what lies ahead for me. I started the year with big plans. I…
