Training for My First Marathon; the Stats are in!

26 Sep

16 is the number of weeks I have been training for this race;

465 is the number of kilometers I have run in those 16 weeks;

44 is the number of hours it took me to run all those kilometers;

23,000 is the number of calories I burned during training but 98,000 is the approximate number of calories I consumed in chocolate in 16 weeks… hmm…

15 is the number of visits to my physiotherapist ouch!

4 is the number of thank you presents I need to buy for my amazing supporters;

3 is the number of days to go until the race; and

1,000,000 is the number of buckets I’m sweating in anxiety and anticipation!

Countless training sessions were missed due to injury, countless hours were spent in misery after missing a training session, countless words of encouragement and support were received and countless will be the joy and exhilaration I will have when I cross the finish line on Sunday!
