It’s 6:30am Sunday morning. It’s dark outside. It’s very cold. And I’m getting up to go for a 3 hour run…. Am I an idiot? Most probably, but this is the last really long run before the GC Marathon so I guess I should be looking forward to it.. well at least finishing it. Next week back down to 2 hours 30 minutes for the big run. Woohoo!
The alarm went off at 5:30am so I could get some food into me and digested before hitting the cold morning air and running trails. Breakfast consists of a big glass of OJ, two pieces wholemeal toast (no butter) one with jam the other vegemite. Back to bed (where it’s warm) with a cup of green tea for a half hour or so.
Camelbak is packed and ready to go. 1 litre water, a fruit Pulp Pack and a couple of gels (just in case!).
Now writing this post is just delaying the inevitable. Time to get up, down a big glass of water and get going. Brrrrrr!! I hope it’s a nice sunrise 🙂
