These ten days have proven to be so much more challenging for my Marathon training than I ever thought it would be. I finally, submitted the final assignments for Year 3 and I am a month away from exams and at the same time I have committed to run the London Marathon to raise awareness for Spinal Research UK.

I am not going to lie, this commitment is hard!

My legs and feet hurt and I am struggling to fit in all my planned runs, especially when I spend 12 hours in the library the day prior a run. But if I manage to stick to my plan it should be ok…

I was lucky this week as my good friend, Myanna got me a 3-day pass for Third Space (a beautiful gym at Tower Bridge!). I managed to do a spin class there, followed by some laps in the pool and about 10 minutes in the steam room 🙂 Apart from that I managed to fit in this week only 2 more runs. My average pace for my runs is on 6:10 mins/km at the moment so need to pick this up a bit this week.

Wish me luck and please sponsor me and Spinal Research UK!
