I’ll let you into a secret, I haven’t run since last Thursday (1st September) … and I only ran 15 miles last week… 😳 (this is not good practice 2 and a bit weeks before a marathon!!)
I could call it a taper, but the truth is other things have just taken over or taken priority – work, life, spending time with family. I’ve been tired too… but I got a good sleep last night (and lay in instead of getting up to train this morning).
I was going to run tonight, but I couldn’t muster up the motivation to go out. I ended up chatting with Fit Girl instead – all important stuff about how http://www.happypawsglasgow.com is going. Exciting times. 🙂
Wednesday morning I have an early appointment which I’ll walk to, and if I wake up early enough I’ll do a run before it. Otherwise I might do a run at lunchtime. I really need to stop making excuses and just go for a run!!
The thoughts are creeping in – have I done enough? Will I be able to run the marathon? Will it be hard because I’m not going out for runs now when I should be?
This marathon isn’t going to train for itself! Eeeek. It’ll be 2 weeks to go on Sunday!
