Giving myself options…

Today I entered another marathon. No, I’m not trying to sneak another one in, I’m trying to space them out a bit instead.

I entered the Wales Marathon, starting in Tenby. It’s a really hilly one and no doubt will be a challenge for me, but it’s probably better to do that and drop the Cheltenham Circular which is only a week away from the Lakeland Trails. This way I run Edinburgh at the end of May, Wales two weeks later and then have three weeks to rest until the Lakeland trails. Fingers crossed this is a wise move!

This evening’s run was likely to be wet. It was. The heavens opened at one point soaking everyone. I’d decided to dispense with the waterproof as it was at the level of downpour where you get wet no matter what you wear. Shorts and a couple short sleeved tops will keep me warm enough, if allow me to become very damp! We covered 7 miles in the rain, mainly off road and very muddy. Good fun but possibly a little more than the legs needed today.

Next run will probably be on Saturday, give the legs a little break, maybe 10 miles. Then a surprise random event on Sunday which ought to make you chuckle…

All the best to everyone doing London at the weekend. I hope all of the hard work in training pays off for you, have a great day. From the club, all the best to Sharon, Lawrence, John and Nick. Enjoy the spectacle of London ;-)

Back in a few days…
