London Marathon 2022: Sarah’s river runs key part of training

YH is following a number of runners as they prepare for the London Marathon in October 2022.
Among the runners is local teacher, Sarah Jackson.
Sarah said: “I first featured in Your Harlow in February 2022, I am a local teacher and mum running the London Marathon to raise funds for Asthma+Lung UK.
We are now less than four months away from the London Marathon and training is seriously underway. Time is passing so quickly and I’m feeling a mixture of eager anticipation and apprehension as a first-time marathoner.
Since my last update I have completed 40 training runs at various times of the day (and night) and kept going despite the setback of being sidelined with Covid throughout March. My longest run has been from Ware to Harlow along the Rivers Lea and Stort, I have really appreciated the chance to see more of our beautiful surroundings while training.
During this portion of the training distances begin to get longer and opportunities for taking part in events arise, my goal is to ensure that every possible preparation for ‘marathon day’ has been undertaken. This month I will be taking part in the ‘Harlow M11 Fun Run’ and in July I will be running the Ware 10-mile race as part of the Ware Festival of Running, therefore hill training will be a major feature of this month’s preparation! The Stevenage 10k in September will most likely be my final event before the big day, but there will be plenty of long runs and local Parkrun events before 2nd October.
