This is it, one last push for the year, one last goal to achieve and potentially the hardest of the lot. I’m finishing the year as I started with a road marathon and I’m setting myself a big time goal of 3hrs 15mins which would also be a big PB for me. The Yorkshire marathon is just over 6 weeks away so I’m getting into the key weeks of the training now.
I missed my target of a sub 3hrs 30min at Taunton in April but I think I’ve learnt an awful lot since then and also of course have done a fair few miles over the summer with 2 ultra’s which I hope will help from an endurance perspective. Besides what’s the worse that can happen? I blow up and have to plod to the end? I can live with that and besides York will provide great scenery for the race so there are worst things to be doing.
