It’s nearly time! I’ve done the training and am now seriously tapering and reminding myself why I signed up for this marathon … for fun!
I’ve had my ups and downs during training, and if anything seem to have struggled over the last few weeks with times slowing down rather than picking up speed. I’m hoping that the additional rest last week will have done my weary body good.
Yesterday I ‘enjoyed’ a massage. I was told my muscles were ‘solid’ – not convinced that’s necessarily a good thing – and had been blissfully unaware of how tight my glutes were! Funnily enough, the side that was not so tight was the sorest! I’ve got homework to do … lots of stretching and plenty of foot mobilisation too, as my feet are somewhat stiff (and a little crunchy)!
Time now to relax, sleep, stretch, and, most importantly, remember there’s no point in stressing about things that are outwith my control. The weather will do it’s thing, I will feel however I feel and all I can do is enjoy the moment!
Loved it last year …
