One month down
I think the biggest challenge so far has definitely been the psychological struggle to motivate myself to get out and run everyday.
Whenever I've trained for other events which have been more physically demanding, like my first marathon I ran last May, I've had rest days and if you don't feel like training one day, you have a day off and run the next.
But there's been days in the first month where I've felt under the weather or had a long day at work and it's hard to gee yourself up to go and put the work in. But I knew this was going to be the case and that's why it's a challenge.
The good news is, with each run I'm starting to feel a bit stronger now and I'm having fewer and fewer aches and pains too!
Bring on the next 11 months!
