It's now less than 90 days until the big event!
Training is still going well, no running update yesterday as I was on a cross training day. I did an hour session of circuits and woke up this morning with achy abs - which made a nice change to the achy legs!
Went out this evening in the beautiful setting sun and did an easy 5 miles. Really noticed how cold it had got! I also had a cheeky race against another runner going up one of the many hills on my route. Probably a bit unfair as I didn't tell him we were racing...
Hoping to launch my 'guess my time' competition at the end of this week - if anyone can think of a more catchy name I'll appreciate it. The idea is simple - guess the time you think I'll complete the race in and the closet time wins a prize. The beauty is that I don't even know how it's going to go, so it'll be interesting to see everyone's predictions!
No more fundraising news today :-( but I'm extremely pleased with the target we have reached so far. It's so motivating to get me out day after day pounding the pavements for such a good cause.
Oh and if you want to read a proper runner's blog check out Pete Grist's (In my followers) - the man is a running machine!
Anyway I'm off for a cup of tea, a biscuit and to settle down and watch 'My big fat gypsy wedding' - you know it makes sense!
