That’s it, last training run before Sunday’s half! And new shoes - replacement for my oldest On Cloudflyers that are knackered, have a hole by the star lacing, and I think were contributing to my knee problem.

This was supposed to be all in zone 2. Not a chance!! I don’t know if it’s pre race adrenalin, but I was utterly unable to control my heart rate. It kept spiking then dropping, and it stayed in zone 3 for the latter half of this run, with a big spike into zone 4.

Wild, wet and windy, though I managed to avoid most of the rain.

Yay! You got new Cloudflyers FlickM3 ! Are these the grey and black ones (like wot I just bought?)

Training done. You are a star. Now just enjoy the race! I cannot wait to read your race report. All the very best. xxx

You know by now that they are 😂😂😂 and thank you. It won’t be fast, given the knee, but I hope I get round, even if I have to crawl xxx

Well that's you all set for Sunday's run Flick, do a few light exercises tomorrow as a warmup, nothing heavy, have a good night's sleep on Saturday night and get up on Sunday morning fresh as a daisy 🌼 I think the weather on Sunday for your run is to be cool 14C/57F, there maybe some showers during your run, but not heavy continueous rain. I wish you well. 😊

Great pics, I love the flowers. My mum calls those chinese lanterns, not sure what the real name is.

Well done on your last run, it's ok to break the "rules" once in a while :D

Yes, I see lanterns. They’re seed pods I think. And thank you 😊

I promise you, you will get round and be great. You have this. Xx
