This is just a short post to say:
I took last weekend off, NO I still ran and one of my runs was a 10km race, but the other day, Sunday, was only an easy 5.5km. Yes I've been taking this week a little easier... I have a big race on the weekend and the thought of start on tired legs isn't will only make from a long day in the rain!!!
Yes we have rain on the weather front for Saturday as we tackle the +_ 38km of the
Hout Bay Trail Challenge
last year I wasn't in the race mentally, long story (read about it here). This year I have not a worry in the world and I hope to be a whole lot faster than the 4h48 of last year, I would like to run colse to 4h15, and I believe I can... (will the weather let me)
Tonight I register and then I have to ensure I have all the gear, water, food, rain gear, first aid stuff, and the list goes on...
The 10km last weekend was far easier, I just pinned my race rumber on the night before popped through to Table View entered and got ready to run. I didn't really race, just set out quickish and then settled into half marathon race pace... I think I had another 5+km in the legs at that pace so maybe by the time I have my half to race I will be ready to race... but that is a story for then.
Pack the bags and get ready for the weekend... Time to race
