It won’t be a great surprise for you to learn that I’ve entered the Loch Rannoch Marathon on October 16. It’s a flattish race running round the loch on quiet roads with lovely scenery.
There are three hurdles to jump before I line up on 16 October.
Firstly I have to get medical approval. I’ve made an appointment for 22 June.
Secondly I have to carry out the required training without getting injured. I’ve started an 18 week training schedule today.
Thirdly I somehow have to overcome the fact that I’ll be on a boat for two weeks in the middle of the training with extremely limited opportunity to exercise!
All that being said I think it’s possible and I certainly look forward to the challenge. I’ll try and post an update once a week.
