#103 - London Marathon: On a training run (33 days)
Listen now
In episode 103, you’re joining me on my eight mile recovery run, following a twenty mile long run the day prior. The Virgin Money London Marathon is in 33 days!! I provide some insights for those who are heading into the final stretch of the marathon buildup, and share several of my key learnings that I’m implementing into this weeks training. This year I’m running for @samaritanscharity as they do great work to help support people who need to speak to someone, if they’re struggling with their mental well-being. It costs £5 for the Samaritans team to answer a call from someone in calling in need. Thank you to everyone that has donated so far we’ve raised £535. That’s 107 spots for people who are in need. If you’re able to donate, please click this link: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/MarcusBrown12/2 I’m going to be releasing a podcast with my coach John Starlett, discussing the final weeks of a marathon buildup very soon. If you’ve got any questions that you want John to help you with, send me a message and I’ll put it on the list. This episode is supported by Tracksmith, a brand which actively represents and supports the development of a runner’s life in the community.
