After a successful outing the day before at the Olympic Park for the 5-mile Lottery 2012 run, I’ve now got the small matter of 22 miles to complete as the culmination of my build up to London Marathon in 3 weeks. It turned out to be a tough old run, legs a little bit heavy towards the end – must have been the hill shuttles I slipped in for good measure. Let the taper begin!
Thanks to my mam who entered me into the Rhondda Leader prize draw to win a place on the Olympic Park 5 mile run. The stadium is pretty impressive, obviously not as impressive as the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff and there was a bit of jostling for position as I crossed the finish line. No doubt the medal I received will fetch a few bob on Ebay in years to come!!
