Week 10: Marathon Update


Ten weeks of ‘training’ is done for the Athens marathon and in order to keep myself honest and motivated, here’s my weekly diary of all things marathon.

Here’s what happened this week:

  • It is officially time to panic.
  • I ran for the first time in weeks. The first mile was completed in 7:35, the second in 8 minutes. The third…didn’t happen.
  • I ran 3.83 miles today and didn’t come close to finishing the 10k.
  • I did book my flight from Athens to Egypt for after the race! That trip is supposed to be my reward for a job well done. Uh oh.

6 more weeks to go. Like last week I ask, “Did you see those shitty Lions lose?”

OK this is getting serious. 6 weeks. 6 weeks. 6 weeks.
