My last long run prior to the London Marathon
I decided to complete my last long run prior to the marathon running past some of my favourite parks in London. It was a beautiful warm day and it felt appropriate after spending a morning in the library studying to escape. I started my run from Guy’s Campus, headed to Westminster. St James was Park n-1, Park n-2 was Green Park, n-3 Hyde Park, n-4 Holland Park and finally beautiful Battersea Park. Truly one of the most enjoyable runs to date, and on a gentle pace of 6:30 mins/km was able to enjoy the views!
In this hectic lead up to the marathon and exams I only managed to fit two more runs. My run yesterday was one of my fastest 10km runs (5:16 min/km pace). Having to write these updates has pushed me to train and while I train, stretch, train and stretch I have in my mind all the beautiful wishes I have been reading on virgin donation page! I couldn’t thank you all enough!
This week I would like to express a special thanks to Annemarie and family, Zaelias, Lucinda, The Abbotts x3, Jaime Schwartz and Malgo for their warm wishes and generous donation!
