Hi Nicole, don't get nervous yet plenty of time to go. Its probably excitement more than nerves as the racing plans for most people begin now or very soon. Good to see you have a training plan all set up, my advice is use as a guide but don't worry if you can't stick to every run it says.
Today is officially the start of my plan and I have to say the winter training that I've done has got me in good shape to really have a good 16week plan. Went out this morning in the glorious sunshine and completed 5.5m with last 30min at fartlek. I couldn't have done that a few months back. Altho my winter training felt really tough and the MK marathon really hard work I think I'm ge the benefit now.
im going to running shop tomorrow and going to treat myself to new running shoes (already got 2 pairs on the go!!!) as I get 15% discount for enterji local race this weekend. Going to check out the gels as well so that in a few weeks when the really long runs kick in I'm ready. does anyo know what drinks they give out at the stops?
jimbo- good to see the mojo is back I feel exactly the same.
like the advice on weights, I'm going to start to do some indoor stretches/sit ups and press ups from tomorrow I think this is really good advice and someth I'm not good at.
ok enough now, best get ready for work
