My Marathon Training Schedule

Last month, I was watching Celebrity Great British Bake Off. For my overseas readers, the show is about a load of people baking things in a tent under the constant supervision of an old lady, a scouser and a lesbian. Sometimes celebrities do it for charity, thats a pretty sound summary of the show. Anyway being a docile, pie lover I was enjoying an episode of the show when famous fat DJ Chris Moyles appeared. Although he has lost a great deal of weight (Chris if your reading fair play and well done). To be honest, it was a slight wake up call that I had become more rotund than famous chunker Chris. Seeing fat Chris Moyles rebranding himself into thin Chris Moyles ignited a marathon running fire deep in my (large) belly.

In some ways, Chris Moyles has become my muse ….. my thinspo (thinsporation) , if you like. He has driven me to get my fat arse off the couch and back into my running shorts. Hopefully, I will be raising a bit of money for Julia’s House Children’s Hospice along the way. Check out my fundraising page for more info and a link to donate.

Here’s my training schedule that I will be following religiously over the coming months:

Marathon Plan 2

You want regular updates I hear you say!?! Don’t worry I will be posting regular updates about my training, accompanied with sweaty selfies of me running in the woods.
