So. Tomorrow I've committed to running the distance.
My PT suggested doing 21kms this weekend rather than the 19 or 20 I had planned; then 15kms the following week as a bit of a taper, with the event the following Sunday.
I guess this has a two fold effect - will see if I can mentally (& physically) do it - although I'm sure I can; & if I miss out on a place, then at least I will have actually run it.
Then I can add a charm to my bracelet. A few weeks ago, I bought myself a 10km, which I added already & the 21.1km in preparation for completing the fun run as a bit of an incentive & who doesn't like adding bling?
Am I nervous? Yeah, a bit. Last weeks run was not fun. I'm busily hydrating in preparation & will be cooking my own dinner tonight. Last week we went out for dinner & I had on recommendation the gnocchi matriciana (as did plumbing boy) which was unfortunately gluggy & not very good & we both felt gross after eating it. Even the sauce was just wrong. I can without a shadow of a doubt make both the gnocchi & the matriciana far better than we had in the restaurant.
I'll make some sort of pasta dish with chicken & snow peas, so hopefully better fuel will help. I've also mixed up my play list a bit & put key favorite tunes in at the 5, 10 & 15km approximate markers to help with the motivation & to stop me looking at my watch so much.
I'm going to run bayside again & know pretty much how much further I need to run on the trail to achieve the distance. I'm just hoping that it's not blowing a gale & hailing. Ugghhh.
Wish me luck!!!!!
