The clock is ticking and we are now looking at hours rather than days! The past few weeks have really passed by quickly and on Sunday will be something that I have been preparing for for several months and looking forward for years!
I am still not nervous although it is increasingly taking most of my thoughts. I have tried to make lists and make sure I am organised and don’t forget anything daft-like my trainers or entry letter!
Lots of people say they feel terrible during taper, or conversely wonderful. I don’t feel either-just normal! It does feel like ages since I did a really long run, although the past two Sundays I have done 8 and 12 miles. I think because I am not putting any pressure on myself-I just want to finish-that has helped with the nerves.
So today I have really thought about my hydration and have been drinking water and squash regularly. Although I have not been sticking to healthy eating plan I have tried not to go too mad as I know it can make me feel yukky.
Expo tomorrow and I think the excitement and nerves will build…
All the best,
