Eyes on the finish line AliBear! You know the rules - do everything in your power to get to the run and then it's only a wee run to the end and being able to eat ALL THE THINGS! You will be fine - line up at the start line with everyone else and keep on going - are you doing Outlaw this year? I will be running or walking depending how broken I feel feel free to run with me I will even share my jelly babies....
It was cold Pete! I went out for my interval run in tshirt and shorts and whilst that was fine when I was actively running as soon as I slowed down it was a might nippy! Interval run today tried for two km each under 5 mins didn't happen first km (of five km run) was 5.19 and fourth km was 4.41mins but was running top of HR on that fourth one got a bit light headed and decided to jog rest of run.
Went to see the massage lady who kneeded my glutes, quads, hamstrings and calves - it hurt but not as much as the one after the Outlaw HM tho'
The only way to get better at hills is to do more hills - do them by yourself where you don't have to feel like you have to keep up with anyone else - have you tried hill repeats? I have been finding trail running by myself lots of fun - really enjoying it!
