3 more days.........

until my walking half marathon!!! IT has come round sooooo fast!

I am really excited and nervous about it all. We got our packs through with our Shine t-shirts, number, bag labels and various other items. It says that on the night we will all be given an illuminated balloon to take round with us which I think will make it all look amazing.

I am not worried about walking the 13.2 miles as I have been exercising like a demon these last 8 weeks. This week I am not going to do any exercise so my body is fully rested and ready for Saturday night.

WW wise I am going to concentrate on having a mix up with my meals making that more my focus instead of the training. Who knows, it may shift some weight giving my body a break......... that would be a lovely bonus if I show a loss on the scales next week. I am feeling unbelievably fit these days so even though I have only lost 1.5lbs while doing this training I have never felt better.

I am going to keep up the exercise after the marathon as I find I actually miss it when I don't do some.

My sis and I have been thinking of what to train for next year and we are looking at maybe doing a 26 mile bike ride and/or some sort of sponsored this space! lol

For those of you that are just starting out on more exercise why not get your name down for next year and make that a goal?

Wish me luck, I will put pics on and let you know how it all went.


PS. I think there is still time if you wish to sponsor me, just click on the link at the top of my blog. Thanks. :0)


  1. Ohh good luck, can't wait to see the pictures

    Vics x

  2. Good luck, I hope you have a fantastic time! Cant wait for the pics!

  3. Best of luck. I'm inspired by all of you who get on with exercising in such a good cause. I'm not quite ready to do that yet, but certainly will think about next years round of races and walks etc.
    I love the idea of the illuminated balloons too.

  4. Yeah, isn't it weird. Last year I trained for the LOndon Moonwalk for 4 months and only lost 5lbs the whole time. I did have the most guargantuam muscles on the back of my thighs though! Have you checked yours??

  5. lol no Kate I havent but I will have to now!

    Next year I think we are going to concentrate on the biking and swimming side for charity.

    I can't believe I am actually enjoying exercise! lol
