This is my third season of training for Brighton Marathon with RunBrighton, and until today I’ve always missed this route due to racing half marathons instead. But not today!
The famous train ride to Goring and run back route is a favourite for the RunBrighton Ambassadors and runners.
Due to the logistics of managing training runs with different pace groups based on time on feet rather than miles, most of our long runs are out and backs – that way we all turn at the same time, no matter how fast we’re running. Everyone gets back to the cafe/pub for breakfast together, and everyone’s happy.
So to get the train somewhere and run allllllll the way home is a real treat!
Today we had BBC Sussex Breakfast presenter Neil Pringle running with us, so listen out tomorrow morning from about 7:20am for interviews from the run!
My 4hrs30 pace group ran nearly 17miles today, and I’m not gonna lie… my legs are SCREAMING.
This time in four weeks they’ll be screaming even more, because they’ll have ran another 9.2miles on top of that.
