I have just got in from completing the above and I feel great.
I had been complaining that my route was just one massive uphill struggle and it was absolutely exhausting me.
Well I have changed the route to one that is much fairer - rather than a total uphill slog, on this one where there was an up it was followed by a down and vice versa.
What difference did this make ?
I absolutely caned it !!!!
I am so happy - with a much fairer route I have the energy and the burning desire to succeed.
I know it will be getting much harder but forgive me celebrating this small step.
Thursday is my next test but using my new route I feel that I have enough fitness to win !!
Finally, can't believe how my recovery is improving. I sweat it out and in a few minutes I feel great !
