Glad to see you are all doing my training for me [saves a lot of time and effort].
Managed about 10k at a bit faster than MP on Friday, leaving it to the warmest part of the day just to try and acclimatise. Yesterday was mega tiring and all I did by way of exercise was 6 miles hill walking. It was our groups 53 mile ultra over the weekend and having completed the Marshals event in March we were on duty from 8.30am Saturday until we got home at 3.30 am today. If I never see another bowl of rice and fruit or piece of flapjack it won't be a minute too soon!! Good to see lots of old friends but standing all day, apart from a brief walk and short car journies, has really made my back ache. Combine that with lack of sleep and today is not turning out to be a good day. I didn't have time to eat or drink as much as I should have so have managed to lose another 1kg and am starting to feel a bit wobbly - so a food fest today, nothing too sweet or calorific to be ignored!!
Minni: did you persuade Mr Minni to do the same marathon?
KFC: nice to hear from you again, but doesn't sound as if you will be chilling with me this year as you will be making sure you get a good pen position.
2Old / Nell / Barry: I am sensing a spot of testosterone fuelled rivalry for next weekend - and that's just the injury list................
Forecast looking a bit more hopeful for next weekend - I am decided just to keep my fingers crossed, keep eating and enjoy the mother and father of all tapers
