Winding down towards the big day

I ran from home at 6.45am just to sense the temperature on marathon day. It was cold enough to keep long sleeves on all the way - won't be doing that on Sunday. I'll just have to shiver at the start but the forecast on Sunday is for about 7deg reaching 22deg later in the day and sunny - sounds pleasant.
Total distance: 8.02km
Time taken: 46:28
Average pace per km: 5:47
The run felt comfortable although my hamstring is still niggly. I had my last physio appointment today and on Friday I have a massage which should hopefully ease out the sore bits for the big day.
This morning I only had to run an easy run for 30mins. It was cold and windy but it felt pretty strange to run for such a short time. I bought all the bits to put on my personal drink bottles today. There's only three more sleeps! I do hope my hamstring holds out for the race.
Total distance: 5km
Time taken: 30mins
Average pace: 6mins per km


  1. Hi Strewth! Very best of luck for Sunday. I'm looking forward to hearing about a record-breaking PB! (Miranda)

  2. 5:47 per km! You never run that fast with us. Are we slowing you down?

    Argh! Only 1 day 11 hours to go! Hope the hammy does the right thing. See you on the weekend.
