0 to Terror in 60 seconds

11 April 2012

I was relaxing at work after lunch yesterday, checking my gmail (for research purposes only), feeling a bit sleepy, when I noticed a ticking time-bomb in my inbox.

The final instructions for my race had arrived, together with a link to the course profile. I hadn’t quite taken on board the amount of hills. I have not done enough hill training. I have no time to address this. I am frightened.

The instructions themselves are lovely. It’s a small race and they say things like “the race takes place in beautiful country side” and “please allow 5 minutes to walk to the start” – five minutes! I love small races.

Best of all, is this list of what each water station will have. Melon!

    I’ve been having moments of terror and anxiety about my marathon and it’s not until next month!
    I’m sure you’re training has prepared you. Just think at the end of every uphill there has to be a downhill!
    Good luck this weekend x
