Well this week I felt much more onto it. The 26k’s was pretty good. The last 5 where hard work but I held together well. Before the run my right achillies and knee hurt, afterwards they both felt good. A busy day mountain biking on Sunday left me pretty worn out, I was asleep by 10 Sunday night. Now I have a cold and haven’t run all week. It’s the first time I’ve missed the midweek “sorta long” runs, as Hal calls them. Anyway I don’t think it’s the end of the world. 19k’s on the weekend, seems like a nice distance now. The next few weeks get pretty intense though, 28k, 22k, then the “big” 32k the most I’ll run before the marathon itself. Gosh the end is in sight!
