Link to the route
I'm really proud of walking that distance, as well as the training I did for it. I got a medal at the end, which is also awesome, because I feel that I earned it. I think I have the marathon/racing bug now: I have registered my interest in participating in three upcoming events in 2012. I like having a goal, I have discovered.
And today, a week later, I went for a five mile walk. I'm taking it easy because I don't want to push myself too hard too quickly. But at the same time, I really miss moving around and exercising. And I really, really would like to lose this stone I've put on during my MA and PhD. So I'm going to train for a marathon in April, irrespective if I receive a place in the London Marathon (charity place), because I need it. Walking regularly helps me deal with my mind, which increasingly is not the easiest thing to deal with. I refer the gentle and observant reader to the subject of this entry.
