…but doesn’t actually feature in this post! Thought I’d continue my song-title-blog-title theme
I thought it’d be interesting to take a look at some of the stats around my London Marathon experience.
These first numbers are taken from my stats on LogYourRun
Shortest run: Way back in December 08 my first run was 1.4 miles, I had to stop halfway throught and practically died by the end. I managed something like 12 minute mile pace although I was so bad back then I didn’t even bother to time myself. Look how far I’ve come!
Longest run: The epic 17 miler that made me throw up and cry, but I managed to run the whole way round!
Fastest run: Before the training got into the long runs I was working on increasing my speed and by trying really really hard and ignoring the pain in my muscles I managed …. drum roll …. 9:30 minute/mile pace around a four mile circuit. Woo!
Most times running the same route: I’ve run my quick 2.7 mile route 15 times in my training. Most other routes have been run at least a couple of times, apart from those where I tried the route once and swore never to do it again!
Total miles run: 241.29 – just over 9 marathons’ worth of running. And soon to be joined by a tenth marathon of course…
Minutes spent training: an amazing 2532 (or 42.2 hours), making my average pace 10:30 minute miles.
Total views: 1,889 (wow!)
Busiest day: 100 — Thursday, April 2, 2009 (this was the day I posted up my vest-printing services)
Comments: 70 (most of them lovely, thank you )
Weight lost: 5lbs
Toenails lost: 5 and counting
Money raised: £1,327.28
I’m aiming for £4000. Please help if you can!
