The gremlins seemed to have got me this morning… I was MEANT to go for a 4.3 mile run to Maxwell Park and back, but didn’t. I suppose I’m almost thinking like it doesn’t matter too much if I miss one or two runs out at this stage… and it might even do me good?
5 days to the marathon and I have a 4.3 mile run, 5 mile run and a 6.2 mile run planned for this week, along with a double session of spinfit tonight.
I woke at 6am this morning and tried to get up… but was dragged back to bed (by myself!) to lay about. I hadn’t set my running clothes out which was a sign for me not really wanting to go. Tut tut. 😉
I suppose I did one constructive thing and sent a text asking 23 of my friends to sponsor me. I’ve raised £875.20 so far and still counting. I’ll maybe do the rounds a bit today at work again.
Last night I wrote a packing list for things I want to take with me and I read some of my book: The Competitive Runner’s Handbook
Anyway, here is the plan for this week:
Monday: Rest day
Tuesday: PM Double Spinfit
Wednesday: AM 4.3 mile run, PM 6.2 mile run, Pace Chart
Thursday: AM 5 mile run, Toenails & Feet
Friday: Rest day, Pack and check info
Saturday: Rest day, Travel, Drive route, meet friends and family.
Sunday: Race day!
Oh and here are my totals – not bad… 402 miles running in 13 weeks!
