Sad news from my end - my running club pal who was coming with me to do our B2B together has sadly had to pull out. He has a nasty ear infection and cannot fly. So gutted for him as it is because of him I got to do Comrades last year. Big old shocker that was yesterday. I will just HAVE to run my socks off now for me, him and the club.
Thanks for the clothing update - I will dig out some space blankets and some old trakkie bottoms.
I am a lone female travelling alone - not massively concerned but just want to make sure that the mini bus - taxi thing is always at the airport for transfers to hotels. Fido said about it last year and I strode confidently out and there it was......easy to be confident then as I had 3 running pals with me.
Had my last massage and ultrasound this morning - have very tight hamstring as being a daft cow, I took part in an inaugural parkrun in local town on Saturday and ran probably a wee bit too hard. Hoping good old massage and rest now will do the trick.
Will go out for a gentle 4 miler tomoz and then a few more on Thursday morning before my drive to Heathrow.
Popping vitamins / Berocca like a good 'un....avoiding anyone who looks ill, sniffing and sneezing.
Am very excited but also nervous but I guess it would be wrong to be anything other.
