Day 42 – Last Minute Pre-Race Running

Tomorrow we travel to Luton. I spend around three hours and forty five minutes running laps of the place and marathon number two is done.

I have the strong impression that doing laps of a course is going to be extremely tedious, but having never done so, I just don’t know, I’ll try (just about) anything once.

Anyway, today I decided I’d run four miles. I’ve been horrendously busy at work for the last few days which has sort of given me no choice but to take a good few days rest before the marathon. This isn’t a bad thing and I feel good that for once I’ve taken it easy. I do feel a bit like I should have run at least once in the last three days though. Three days off is highly unusual for me.

I managed to keep a steady and gentle pace for the first three and a half and then pushed a little for the last bit. A good warm up for tomorrow.

Off to Brighton for the day now. Many more miles tomorrow…
