I am very pleased that I smashed my previous longest distance of 23km by completing 30km yesterday. It was also my longest continual exercise at 3 ½ hours (just over 33,000 steps!). Of course, I did this without sugar or carbs as usual.
Especially given the challenges that arose, I was very happy with this time. This distance is about 71% of a full marathon distance (42km) so whilst it will be challenging, I feel I might be on track to meeting my target of a 4 ½ hour marathon. We will see!
My next goal is to run 35km next week.
Thank you so much to everyone who has sponsored and supported me on my “marathon without sugar” journey. I am overwhelmed with the donations and kind words received.
