So tomorrow I am running the Southend half and have to confess to feeling more than a little worried.
My running gas taken a real hammering lately. Taken a new job which I love but is longer hours and a long commute and just haven't been able to fit much in or had the energy to do it.
I ran 10 miles last Sunday which after Mile 7 was very hard, although it was really hot, however I did manage to do it in my quickest time ever !!!
So I toyed with the idea of pulling out of tomorrow but have decided to give it a go,. I'm trying to tell myself that it just doesn't matter about time, just get round but I know that there will be that side of me that wants to do it well.
I am just not the sort of person that does anything under prepared but tomorrow I will be and hoping that my legs will remember what they have to do.
I am hoping the sun will not make an appearance and dare I say it, hoping for a little rain.
Mental preparation is key for me now.
It's gonna be hard but hopefully I will manage it and be able to tell the tale with a shiny medal.
