So of course the 2020 Brighton Marathon didn't happen.

I have however - transferred my place to 2021 - so April 18th is my new target date.

Training proper will commence in January 2021 - for now I continue to complete various virtual challenges to maintain my running enthusiasm - this month, October, it's a 75 mile for the month target. I've completed 50 odd miles, so pretty much on track.

It's July and the Brighton Marathon is said to still be on in September - so I am back on the marathon training wheel.

Last Sunday, 5th July - I did the Goodwood Half Marathon - virtually of course - that was the start of my 'back at training' plan - my knees did not take kindly to the 13.1 miles, but by the following Tuesday they were working again without screaming at me.

Which just re-emphasised how training is key to surviving through this experience, lol.

I am aiming to run at least 150k (93 miles) in July, with more in August.

Let's see how that goes :)

OK, so of course COVID19 has meant that the Brighton Marathon has had to be postponed until September 20th.

You can imagine how sad I was after being mostly through the training plan, however at least I will know what to expect next time round. I will have the added impact of warmer climes to contend with - but at least the evenings and mornings will be lighter.

I start my training again in June, maybe I should set my sights at a faster time :)

To those that have sponsored me already - thank you, your money will still be going to a good cause - and rest assured I will still be running a Marathon at some point this year!!

I'm into week 11 with only 5 weeks to go

I have run just shy of 200 miles so far!!

I have battled more storms than I can throw a tin of alphabet spagetti at - it has rained torrentially, it has hailed, there have been winds like you can't believe, I have seen the biggest most ferocious seas and waves and when ever possible I have got out there to do my training, it has been bleak - I think I need my marbles checking.

I did miss out three runs in week 10 - where I really just couldn't face the cold miserable weather anymore, but I am back in the game now.

I am running around 15 miles for my long runs on a Saturday, that will continue to increase to 20 miles - which is basically the circumference of Portsmouth island and some, it has become normal speak to say - I'm just popping out for a quick 5 mile run!
