Well, that's it. Last long run done (15K over hills and through wind fresh from the North Sea) My time was ridiculously slow as usual but I can even feel good about that because apparently it's thr slow runs that teach your body to burn fat rather than glycogen for energy and make it less likely that you'll hit 'the wall' in the race itself. That is so much what I want to hear that I choose to believe it and refuse to risk weakening my belief by scrutinising the evidence. So a glass of congratulatory prosecco and a hot bath later (an ice bath is not for me - so I refuse to scrutinise the evidence in favour of those either) I am feeling all fuzzy and brimming with, maybe not confidence, but happy resignation. I WILL finish my first half marathon in my own good time in just 8 days time. Oh and I am so inebriated with endorphins and prosecco that I have also signed up for that well known London 10K in July which takes you past all the sights. I know it's expensive but then so is a city bus tour and you don't get the traffic stopped and people cheering you on one of those...
