The less said about my marathon training the better. Despite having a plan, and planning to stick to my plan, my plan so far hasn’t really gone to plan.
I did, however, sort-of successfully complete a 12 mile run a week or so ago, with ‘sort-of successfully’ meaning I managed to do the twelve miles within the minimum 13 minute miles I need to do to finish Dymchurch Marathon within the six-hour cut-off time and claim my medal and goody bag before everyone’s packed up and gone home, a-la London Duathlon 2013.
But since that twelve mile run, I’ve done what I believe the technical term for is ‘fuck all’. I haven’t even been to the gym or gone on a walk. I cycled to the station on Saturday but although I would count that as a valid form of exercise during an ‘athon, I’m not sure I can call it cross-training for a marathon.
Despite all this slacking though, I’ve entered the Folkestone Half Marathon which is taking place this Sunday. If I run it this time as badly as I ran it last time (limping over the finish line in about 3 hours) then I’ll probably decide the marathon isn’t for me and hope Helen, Cassie and Rachel don’t find out I’ve wimped out and never talk to me again.
Don’t be a loser like me – enter my giveaway and win stuff
Anyway, just because I’m a loser who has lost the ability to run quicker than I can walk, doesn’t mean everyone else is and so, if you’re training for a marathon and would like to win some stuff to help you fuel before, during and after training and the race itself, then I’ve got just the giveaway for you.
With thanks to Discount Supplements, one winner will receive:
- an XL Nutrition High Protein Flapjack Jumbo Bar;
- a case of 6 Maxi Milk Maxi Nutrition Recovery Protein Shakes; and
- a High 5 Marathon Race Pack containing:
- Iso gel plus x 1
• Iso gel x 2
• Energygel plus x 4
• Energygel x 8

• Energybar x 1
• 10 tube zero x 1
• 3 x sachet zero X’treme
• Run Bottle
• Run Lounge membership (3 month membership FOC)
• Marathon Nutrition Guide

So, that’s everything you see in the photos (don’t worry, you’ll get a nice new one sent directly to you; you won’t be getting my battered and opened one).
How to enter
To be in with a chance of winning the High 5 Marathon Race Pack, just leave a comment below letting me know which marathon you would love to do if time, money, family commitments, etc., were no problem.
I’ll draw a winner at random after the closing date of Saturday, 24 October 2015.
UK entries only, sorry.
