Hello All! Thanks for dropping by. I am Mike, middle aged and getting no younger. I have two children a partner and two dogs.
A few months ago I decided that it would be good to get into shape, so I bought a pair of trainers and a treadmill and started to run.
Why have I started all this you may ask. Well I was sitting in my office, not moving much as usual. And I felt a pain in my chest. The doctor said that it was nothing to worry about, but if I didn’t want it to become anything else I should maybe consider doing a little more exercise.
Not wanting to do things by half I have signed up for a marathon in a years time, now I need to start training. So here I am with my new trainers, a new treadmill and miles of parklands to explore on a new adventure.
So now I have completed a couch to 5km routine I can now lumber round a flat 5km course in about 25 minutes (25.11 at last count). There is still massive room for improvement and I strive to go a little further every day and every week.
Join me on my adventures as we see if I can go from my 5km race up to a 26mile race, and complete the full marathon.
