Training for London 2009 increases

I must plan my runing better.
I had aimed to run the Wrexham half marathon this weekend. But having entered on the day or in the week before in previous years, this year it is full.
Turn unfortunate to fortunate.
I decided that i really needed to put in some distance such as the half marathon distance. So Friday night after work i did my longest training run for months 14.5miles - 2 of my usual circuits from home. Determination works.
It feels good to have put in the miles . Now to plan some more runs in preparation for Flora London Marathon 2009 which i am running oncemore in aid of Nightingale House Hospice. Fundraising website to be set up soon.
