It’s been a while since my last blog, but I have certainly been training hard. Over the weeks I have gradually increased the distance I have been runnning; I am currently running just over 8 miles – not bad considering 12 months ago I struggled to run for the bus! I need to keep pushing the distance I run because the Cardiff Half Marathon is looming!

I have this evening signed up to ParkRun and hope to do the 5km run most Saturday mornings (hangover permitting) and to include this as part of the training. The course starts in the grounds of Trdegar House in Newport – appropriately the former house of the Morgan family, later Lords Tredegar. Sadly, despite sharing the same surname, I have no family claim to this property!

Meanwhile, fundraising for Dogs for the Disabled continues! My target is only £100 (I hope to raise a lot more if I get a place in the London Marathon next year) so please help me reach this target – and leave me a message of support! Visit www.justgiving.com/cardiff2012 for more information.

My ParkRun results will be available very soon so you will be able to track my progress (and make sure that I actually get out of bed on a Saturday morning!)
