I’ve been struggling with my marathon training recently. It’s not that I lack the motivation. I have plenty of that. I think my problem is that the closer race day gets the bigger the task ahead of me feels.
26.2 miles is a heck of a long way. I’m not sure I’ll be able to run the full distance no matter how much training I do. Before Christmas, the more I trained the more injured I became, so training went on the back-burner for a while – not exactly ideal to say the least!
But last week my running resumed and I managed to complete 9.5 miles in 1hour 22mins – I was over the moon!
There are times where we all face what feel like insurmountable challenges. And truth be told, they are scary. But the important thing is just to make a start. It doesn’t matter where – just that you do. The sooner the better.
