Right. Game on. Rob, Terry and I smashed out our final long run yesterday, setting off East along the river from the Thames Barrier to just beyond Erith and back. The best bit about yesterday was realising how important it is to all of us that we encourage each other at those infamous ‘wall’ moments every runner hits at some point. It was also the first time we had run approximately three hours together, and we all know that concentration will be key in this long race. Only a couple of dramatic moments: realising our imminent proximity to the nearby driving range and potential as moving targets, and Rob ponderings on whether his morning smoothie and tuna sandwich would stay where it should.. (Sorry Rob – had to do it!)
So this week, it is all about carbs, rest and staying physically tuned in preparation for the big day on Sunday. I just have to say a big ‘hats off’ to the guys for yesterday’s efforts – top drawer determination and drive – we have done the hard yards, so let’s just get to the starting line on time! Also, many sincere thanks to all those who have donated to either Rob’s or my justgiving account already, and please do continue to spread the word!
