Just over three weeks to go to my HM and my Gremlins are starting to kick in. These come first then come the Taper Terrors 😂😂😂. It is hard to believe I love doing HM’s.
Can i do this?
I can’t run!
What am I doing?
I go through this every year, my running goes to pot, my life gets so busy with work April and May and my running confidence ends up in the gutter. I am so used to this happening I tweak my training plan so I have completed all my 17km runs just in case I don’t get chance to do another one but every year it still unsettles me how much my brain can try and convince me I shouldn’t be running a HM.
This will be my sixth HM and I will do it, I know I will, will I be slow YESI WILL, will I be pleased I did it. YES I WILL, does my time matter NO IT DOESN'T .
All that matters is I go out to enjoy my event no matter what my pace.
That is the most we as runners can ever ask from ourselves, so keep on going out for your runs and build your confidence up because you will have days like I’m having today and you will be thankful you can kick your gremlins into touch because we are all runners and we can do this...
Happy running to you all.
Picture is me after my first ever HM, talk about a beetroot face 😂😂😂.
