Westy - got my certificate signed on Monday. Cost me £20, other half got his done for free when he was full of flu and had an ear infection! Grrr! I'm dreading it being warm - that will really screw up my pacing plans !
4.30am start was no colder than usual and at least it's getting lighter. Mustn't forget the clocks go forward this weekend. Another hour of sleep lost!
To be honest this week doesn't feel too much like a taper week! My legs are still protesting loudly and while 16 miles seemed like a 'short' long run to look forward to a couple of weeks ago it now seems like quite a bloody long way!
So much for no more stupidly early get ups! Another 4.30am start for me this morning to get the 5x600m interval session done. Went to pot on the 4th but managed to pull myself together to do the last one and it turned out to be the quickest!
Thinking of racing the parkrun on Saturday as the tune up race. Wasn't going to bother with these tune up races but as I have to do the long run on Sunday this week I thought maybe I should . Just scared I'll get injured trying to keep up with my very fast 8 year old son!
Trying really hard not to overeat during stupid taper. Could do with losing a couple of pounds to get down to racing weight!
Westy - have you got your medical certificate back yet? And have got a weather forecast for Paris?!
Not sure what to do reference target for Paris. I always knew 4 hours was going to be a stretch and even with yesterday's PB I'm not sure I'm going to be capable of sustaining the pace required for 26.2 miles! I have a crap record in races but then maybe that's because I set myself unrealistic targets!
