Route: 5m, road, undulating
Weather: 9C, light rain
Ran a steady 5m with the club. No problems to speak of, although I do have a bit of a cough which I am trying to shift. It's not that bad at the moment (apart from when I wake up) but a reduced lung capacity is not ideal for a 50m run! Hopefully it'll be ok by Saturday.
Going to rest completely tomorrow night and run 2m on Thursday. Friday I'll be travelling down to Shepperton in West London where I'm staying before Saturday's event (which finished at the door of the hotel - so if I do manage the distance, I can just keep on running up the stairs and into bed!!) (Obviously after much stretching, physio!)
I'd love to be feeling excited about this run - it should be perfect: my second 50 miler so less pressure, totally flat course, weather can't be worse than Rotherham, finishes at the hotel I'm staying at and it's my birthday, but I'm just feeling very apprehensive. AS I said, worst case scenario, I'll drop out and get a bus back to the beginning!
