One thing I haven't done yet is any runs at the pace I'll be going on the day. Even the run/walk LSR's I've done have been at 12 minute miles. Might have to make sure my last couple of short easy ones are done at race pace, just to see what it feels like.
I was having similar thoughts at various points yesterday Alastair. This time next week I'll be at the start, I'll be 20 miles in, I'll be finished (hopefully!). God these races take over your life don't they?
Did my last run of any real distance yesterday. Ten miles, pretty easy. 4 miles very easy this morning and then it will be just a few very gentle, short leg stretchers during the week.
Just logistics to worry about now! My main concern, is there a toilet on the coach?!
Wow, a week from now I'll be crapping myself and trying to get all my shit together to head over to Avebury. Can't believe how quickly it's come round.
Just two days ago, on the hottest day of the year, I spent all day in bed feeling utterly dreadful. No idea what it was but I was absolutely shattered, nauseous, headache and sweats. The weather was unbearable. Laying there then, the thought of doing 100k (I think of nothing else at the moment!) in 10 days was impossible. I was almost convinced I'd be pulling out I felt so bad. Now, two days later, I'm completely recovered and felt fresh as a daisy on a 6 miler this morning.
Just thinking about all the stuff I have to sort out before next weekend. Food, headtorch (haven't used it in months and am not even sure where it is), etc.
Forecast looks good anyway. 20 degrees, sunny intervals.
