8 days to go – Tired out!

Having taken another two days off, today was supposed to be six miles. I decided on an out and back route and was glad I did. At three miles I was really struggling and felt absolutely out of energy. The return three were tough and I really felt like giving in. I can’t even manage six miles after a day off. What’s going on? Doesn’t bode well for Chester.

I’m now thinking like a first time marathon runner: if I train to a distance run but slowly and train to a fast pace but short, how is it going to come together on race day?

On the good news front, I’m registered for Lisbon in December which should be a bit better than the UK in December as far as running conditions go! It’s also a great excuse to go somewhere I’ve never been, but am told is worth a visit.

Twelve tomorrow?
