Tapering now for next week's Bath Half, so out for an 8k run on the trails this morning. We had heavy rain earlier this morning but I wasn't expecting it to be quite as muddy as it was! Some tracks were almost unrunnable they were so slippy and on many others it was just a case of ploughing through the standing water as there was no way round! Unusually I didn't meet another soul - no dog walkers, cyclists or other runners - just little ol' lonely me! It was mostly fun but I do confess to allowing those pesky gremlins out of their box once or twice - telling me it felt quite hard and "you've got to run almost 3 x this next weekend". I did eventually manage to silence them, telling them they 'know nothing'and I've done the distance twice already. 😛 I guess this is normal as I always doubt myself before an organised event. Roll on next weekend - I think I just want to get on with it now!
