Out for a light run this morning. Pollok Park very busy with all the campers. Ran some of the blue racing line they had painted for the marathon .
After my mega weights / endurance session last week I am now on two weeks taper! Hurrah!! Who needs a gym, just get an allotment . I cracked on at a fair pace last week, so I wont need to do any more heavy lifting now until after my race.
Enjoying watching some of the athletics, but if I see one more swimming race or lawn bowling televised . Actually its not so much the races, its the dire BBC commentary. I thought the World Cup commentary was bad, but this...!
5.5hrs on the allotment today, did all my watering, got loads of tomatoes YUM!
Then spent the rest of the time clearing my new shed of all the rubbish and junk I have inherited from the previous tenant - hoard-tastic! Luckily they have a skip up there at the moment so I could just put loads of it in that. Some salvageable stuff - one of the regulars was happy as Larry when I gave him a bunch of seed trays and a knackered old crate .
I'm going for a straight finish, inside the 30hrs would be good .
I dnf'ed at 53m at GUCR earlier in the year due to bad stomach issues and lack of food, I think I had a bit of a virus leftover from the Winter as was just exhausted in the build up and quickly knackered on the run.
Feeling much better for this, loads of energy, eating really well with all the good food from my allotment, and raring to go . Centurion also has a positive vibe about it which helps with the mental side of things.
