Hello 2018. Hello year of London Marathon. In case you didn’t know I’m running London Marathon. 16 weeks out. It’s time to get focussed.


I ran 1563 miles in 2017. This consisted of Stirling Marathon, six half-marathon races, four 10KM races. I also climbed a munro, got seriously sweaty in GRIT classes and found swimming to be quite therapeutic.

2017 data

2017 definitely taught me a lot in terms of fitness, I never thought I would be the type to do a marathon. Turns out I am. I have learnt the importance of resting and doing nothing. I am not saying I am good at it, far from it, but 2018 is the year I learn to train hard, rest easy. My hanger levels were constant during training for Stirling Marathon. During 2018, I want to be better at meal prepping and having more snacks!

So, 2018 in goal form:

  • London Marathon 
  • Drink more water, every day. Prosecco and coffee are essential in life, water just more so.
  • Take recovery days. Even if it is an active recovery day, e.g. go for a walk, or swim, or do yoga videos. I am currently loving Yoga With Adriene
  • Eat better, expect more recipes!
  • Be kinder to my feet! It will be costly, but not running in trainers which have seen better days.
