“30 mins easy”
I have survived my final run before Saturday, so barring a freak accident, I will be toeing the line in Winchester at 6am. Pre-race nerves have yet to kick in, but that’s mainly because my mind is in full ostrich mode. Every time I try to think about what I need to do and where I need to be, I zone out and find myself thinking of kittens, or having just one more game of Sudoku, or dreaming up an extreme bit of parkrun tourism for some unspecified parkrunday in the future.
Fortunately my mandatory kit is pretty much assembled, thanks to a number of full kit training runs, and I still have my packing list from Thames Path. I’ve also got Friday off work. Fingers crossed, that proves to be enough.
