2 days to go...not the best time to come down with a cold. Have felt it coming on for a couple of days but today I've woke up feeling horrid Will still be running but it looks like the PB is out of the window. Had felt good for taking a decent chunk off my time too. Fingers crossed i'm feeling a little better Sunday morning!!
2 weeks to go, it's come round so quickly!! This will be my second GBR after a really enjoyable event last year. Haven't got to train anywhere near as much as I'd like due to work (been averaging 10 miles a week since July) but have managed to up my milage the last couple of weeks. Planned a 13+ mile long slow run today but a couple of diversions and it somehow came out at 16 miles...those last couple of miles were tough but I feel good for the extra milage.
I've always used Google Earth. The path feature is great for calculating distances. I had about 8 different routes all of differing distances saved so I could load up whichever one was appropriate for what sort of distance I was looking to run.
