Man vs Lakes marathon, by Matthew Faulkner

Well the training has begun. First Marathon of my life here we come. Looking at what I have to achieve in the next few months, I am wondering what have I done?!

However peer pressure combined with wanting to achieve a lifelong ambition, and knowing that I am reasonably fit means I have booked my place and WILL be ready for July 15th.

July 15th is when I will be running a marathon with a twist. I will be taking part in the Man vs Lakes, starting out at Morecambe and finishing in the Lake District, after swinging in some trees and negotiating inflatables on the Lake as part of the ‘running’ Marathon.

My training has begun. I consider myself lucky to have some good connections to help me along the way. Having run my own Physiotherapy company for over 10 years, I already work with some great fitness people. Now though, I need to practice what I preach, so I am off to the gym 4 times a week for some Strength & Conditioning work,   followed by a run diary devised for me by Accelerate Coaching.

I envisage lots of soft tissue work and foam rolling for me in the next few weeks, not forgetting plenty of stretching. I’ll let you know how I get on.
