Marc's grueling training schedule...

Like most things, training hasn't really been going to plan...

Heavy snow stopped me getting out and getting some great shots when I was in Eindhoven a few weeks ago. I've been just been keeping on top of my fitness on the treadmill when I can, usually every other day doing 800m intervals. 800m at 8mph, 800m at 5mph, 800m at 8mph and so on. Mainly because my treadmill stops without warning at around 40-50 mins and I end up in crumpled heap! I should really get a new one, but it’s a great way to build stamina and keep on top of things and I'm feeling great.

With 40 days to go I'm going to be getting in the road miles, which was always the plan. 25 miles this week, 28 next week, then 35, then 40! I'll be taking it easy the week before the marathon, finishing with 15 on the Thursday.

My youngest, Alexa, has done me a plan so if she asks, that’s what I'm doing!! :-)
