Its the big one six tomorrow..........

Right then...6 days ago I completed 14 miles, and over the following period, I have not done any running whatsoever....zip, zilch, nada........therefore my 16 mile attempt tomorrow should be good for a laugh...

On one hand I feel rested but on the other hand I feel rusty in a sense. But to be honest, my feeling at the moment is train to complete the marathon and hit my half-marathon targets...and of course raise the £2k for Terence Higgins *cough*justgivinglinkonrighthandside*cough*

In a funny way I am actually looking forward to going out for 2 hours and pounding the Thames footpath, as I said in earlier posts, its 'me' time, rather selfish but its nice to be able to gather your thoughts after a long week.....

The other element, is that this will be my last major and lengthy run before the Brighton 1/2 on 19th Feb, as I go to Turin for the Winter Olympics on Wednesday for 7 days.

I am lucky enough to be out there, as my employer, Easynet, is the Broadband Networking Partner for the BOA and Team GB. Therefore, I am escorting customers and staff to Turin to give them a little taste of the Olympic experience. As a result, there will not be much time for me to run. However, there are some unfullfilled childhood fantasies of running through the snow with a log on my back a la Rocky, but frankly that aint gonna happen.........

So, with the big one six tomorrow, a speed session on Monday, its a case for the next 10 days of just trying to fit in what I can...

Well done and good luck in keeping up the mileage in Turin. I've been away all week on business in Asia and running on treadmills is sooo boring, but has to be done
