Thursday 19 March
OK, so I went.
I was still in bed at 9am (I’ve been sleeping very well since I got back) and got my sorry trainers to the group run.
Karen told us that we were to do an ‘easy run’, no more than 5km and enjoy it. Sounds easy enough doesn’t it?! How wrong you can be!
We seemed to get split out fairly quickly and by about 2.5 km were in 2 separate groups. We decided that the 4 of us (with Karen) would peel off in separate directions to find the other group.
So our 3 miles became a 4.4 miles and Lizzie and I tried to run at a pace we’d like to run the half in. So not so easy, not so short but still rather enjoyable. Lizie and I didn’t find the others and got back to the cars first. We spent some time mulling over a race plan strategy for Sunday but we’re both so easily swayed either way that we didn’t really come up with a final plan. The rest of them eventually turned up having run 7km instead…they’re a fit bunch, they can cope.
As an aside Karen has sent out race plans for us all. She has a wonderful version of my life where I run a 1.59 half marathon on Sunday.
I think only time will tell.
