I have put the podcast on my mp3 player, charged it, washed and aired my running top, looked out my running socks and set my alarm. Weather check says tomorrow will be a nice day, sunny but cool when I go for my run in the morning. Trainers checked, they are starting to wear a little but have plenty grip left which is good.
Today I have taken the dog two big walks in order to gently stretch my calf out. Tonight a bath to ease up the muscles and I have some new extra strength ibuprofen gel which I have tested and it seems good.
I am as prepared for stepping stone tomorrow morning as I am likely to be. I have a bit of enthusiasm and a bit of apprehension, I hope that is a good sign. I am going to give this a darn good try.
