Well after a few month’s absence Marathon Intervals is back up and running!
The absence has purely been due to a workload issue and certainly not a lack of interest in running, either by myself personally or the in the elite marathon world. I watched the classic race at London with interest and, like many, struggled to grasp with the shock of what happened at Boston.
The excitement ahead lies with the World Championships in Moscow in less than a month – with an almost entirely fresh Kenyan squad taking the stage will they reverse their fortunes from the Olympics, or will this year’s London champ, Eithiopia’s Tsegaye Kebede, give their rivals a win?
Personally I’ve just come off a 5km and half marathon PB in the last two weeks, meeting one of my New Year’s resolutions and going under 20 minutes for 5km. My focus now is on a marathon in four weeks and then my main race of the year, Melbourne Marathon in October.
Apologies for the delay and let’s get talking running!
