Two months ago I wrote a post asking for advice about running a 13 kilometre race in April and lots of you lovely folk advised and encouraged me to go for it. WELL..... after two months of dithering and prevaricating (and listening to pesky gremlins) the final day for entries was upon me! By coincidence the closing date for entries was the very same day a year ago that I graduated from C25k. The naughty gremlins were still whispering 'you will be sooo slow', 'you haven't trained properly', 'what if your knee starts hurting?' etc, etc. Luckily my hubby won't listen to my gremlins and on Monday morning entered me for the race!! Oh my goodness, a real proper race with chip timing, water station, pens at the start........ HELP! I read the 'Information for runners' on the website and got rather scared by the sentence 'This is not a fun run or a walk it is an endurance race....'. But, I have a plan. I ran a nice, relaxing 5k today (to celebrate my runniversary), Friday I will use 'Speed' and on Sunday do a 12k starting at 8.30 (no breakfast) as a rehearsal for the race. Next week I will do a couple of runs, probably 8k and 6k (sound ok?) before travelling to the big city on Friday. Race day is Sunday 9th!!
