Yesterday I completed my penultimate challenge – my treadmill marathon at David Lloyd, Long Ashton. It was a hard slog, but I felt surprisingly good and my muscles have already recovered! I have even been back to the gym for a work out today!
David Lloyd were great and provided me with drinks throughout as well as putting up posters everywhere to advertise my marathon! Helen and Elsie (my 4 year old niece) managed to bring in another £117 in donations by going round with a collection bucket while I was running!
I must also say a big thank you to my friend Aimee who held a cake sale at work and raised £62.19!
It was a fantastic day and I was overwhelmed by the support from friends and family who came to watch me run and posted messages on Facebook! I also had a visit from Faith and Amit from IES/Brand 51 (my main sponsors) who came to show their support and take some photos and a video!
My treadmill marathon has given me the confidence to know that I am mentally and physically prepared for my Everest marathon – bring on the 29th of May!
