I'm tracking my training and preparation here. At the weigh in on Monday I was 95 kilos (just under 15 stone). I plan to run four days a week Mon -Weds & Fri, Sat is a rest day and Thurs & Sun I play five a side football. I will post all of my training details here as well as my progress.

Here is my progress - http://www.mapmyrun.com/workouts/
Today was a hard session, but actually physically easier than my session on Monday when I ran the same time and did less distance & cals (not logged). Early days, but a good start to the training. We've started recruiting other members for the team as well!
For anyone planning a run, it is good to use a tool like Mapmyrun. It helps set goals and monitor progress (maybe I'm just a nerd about such things, but it motivates me!).
