London Marathon 2012

Ok, so I'm going to turn this into a running blog for a few months. A sudden return to running 3 years ago after about a 20 year break has ended up getting more and more serious. After some encouraging results this summer it seemed like there wasn't going to be a better time to try and run 26.2 miles.

Never thought I'd ever try a marathon so it seems a bit strange to be signed up for London next year. Training has been great over the summer but just recently took a big turn for the worse as I idiotically did this run: http://g.co/maps/4ud5d then played football the next day for the Accies. Lo and behold I've done something painful to my knee (hobbling around on and off for about 3 weeks, but its been feeling better recently). Physio reckons it might be fine - though theres a possibility its a cartilage tear. Either way I think Im going to press on - I was lucky to get a place and I think the Physio thinks that even with a bit of rehab i'll still be able to do it.. Since then Matty Rowbury has challenged Fowler to a marathon showdown (Matty ran for UCL - so I have my work cut out!) GAME ON!!
