Cardiff HM Training Diary – Week 2

Fitness, running

“Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired.” George Patton

Fitness, running

The week after I finished my first half-marathon, I signed straight up to my next one, it was a bigger event, I was to follow a heavier training plan and I was full of enthusiasm, only 3 months until I started my training!

Those 3 months were possibly the hardest 3 months of my life.
