...and I am excited, and a bit nervous too. I am hoping that the weather will be kind, as it has been horribly windy now for what seems like weeks (cars being blown off the road windy!). I did some interval training a couple of days a go, and finished off with a long run, which felt really good until the weather turned and then I was freezing!
I find it such a challenge when occasionally I have a really rotten run, and it feels as though everything is unpleasant. Normally I get such a buzz and sense of achievement when I run, and always feels refreshed and energized afterwards (even when the run is really difficult). But once in a while I seem to have a really crap time, I am so glad that this latest bad run was not on race day!
My youngest sister has just completed an amazing sounding adventure race as a part of her polytec outdoor education course. The race included a super long bike ride, a kayak, and a 10km run! The members of the course are so lucky as they get a personal coach as a part of their course, and were able to spend hours of time doing endurance training as a part of their study! (I have to admit that I am a teeny bit jealous, but super proud of my sisters achievement!)
I am planning to go on a short, gentle run this afternoon, and then have some home-made pasta for dinner. Then it is an early start in the morning, with a couple of hours drive to the race, and a 10am start. Bring it on :-)
