About 10 minutes ago I received an email telling me that my guru, Jeff Galloway, has just released a half-marathon training app via LoLo! About 8 minutes ago it appeared, fully purchased, on my iPhone! I am delighted that Jeff, who has helped reduce my 5k and 10k times and got me through my first half last autumn, is going to be coaching me up to the Great North Run. You’ve no idea how reassuring it is to hear his southern drawl, y’all.
I tweeted him @JeffGalloway asking if I was the first to download it. I must have been. Maybe he’ll send me something nice to inspire me along the long road to South Shields in two months time!
Of course this means that my carefully worked out training plan is now in the bin and I will just abandon myself to Jeff’s higher knowledge, starting this weekend. I can’t wait to see what he has in store!
Forgive me, I must rush to my app…
