I’m training to run the Brighton Marathon in April.
Today I’m going to do the first long run of my schedule (14 miles). I’ll admit to being a little nervous, it’s the longest run I’ve done for a few years and a large part of me would rather stay at home watching the Winter Olympics on TV (I don’t know about you but I’m caught in my quadrennial fascination with ice skating, slopestyle and other chilly sports).
