.....I will have completed my very first HM (do you like the positive vibe?). This is the 3rd time I’ve typed a blog as have lost the other 2...so this may be shorter than I originally planned.
Since last week I’ve done 5.25miles with running club and Parkrun (a very rubbish time!) so as you can see I’m taking my tapering very seriously...this is the easiest part of my HM plan lol. I’m hoping by taking it easy this week (only going to do run club on Tuesday) my legs will be fresh and I can get near to my target time. However, as long as I get round in one piece I’ll be happy!!!! Thinking about it too much makes me nervous but by repeating I CAN DO IT, I CAN DO IT helps calm me. ...hopefully I’m not doing this out loud or will get very strange looks on my commute from Kent to London every day!!!
There are quite a few people from my running club doing Paddock Wood HM & I’m travelling down with some of them...having people in the car will help take my mind of my nerves. They have been told to bring warm clothes as they may have a bit of wait until I finish. Everyone is very encouraging so whilst nervous I’m also starting to get a little excited.
I will report back next Sunday
