The Countdown Begins!

Six more sleeps! The program says today should have been a rest day. However I'm mixing things up a bit and decided instead to meet Jen at Parliament House for a run before the speedygeese session. As the speedygeese training was a hill session I decided to run the easy run scheduled for Wednesday. We ran a pleasant run through the trails round Parliament House and down past the yacht club and on for a slightly undulating 4km before turning and running back the same way. The wind chill factor made the air quite chilly and we ran in spray jackets although I was pretty hot by the time we returned to PH. I managed to say 'hi' to everyone running the main session before heading home an hour earlier than usual and actually enjoying a meal with Mr B as, being a public holiday, he didn't have squash tonight.

I didn't eat any chocolate today. The rest of the Easter eggs can wait. My plan now is to hold off on any junk until after the marathon. Healthy food is on the agenda.

  3. Good on you Ruth. Sounds like you are feeling 3+ days pre marathon fresher than me. Perhaps I need to spend the next few days in bed to catch up to where you are at?
