Countdown to St Peters

I am in a restless mood at the moment, body says "Run", mind says "Calm down" and my ankle just grumbles!

No running on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday due to a stomach upset and working late at College so today I promised myself a very gentle run even though my mind and body were in conflict but boy, was it a cold one but I traipsed through it making sure I didn't put any pressure on myself. 

I was being very careful as I have had this little niggle in my right ankle today and not sure if it is just a "Monkey Foot" thing or the makings of something so as usual I ignored it and hoped tonight's run will iron it out. I am not sure at the moment as my legs are still warmed by the run so will see how it goes in the morning.

I then plan a gentle run at the track on Thursday and rest up until Sunday's 45 miles (72 km) which looks to an epic adventure but I do feel very tired at the moment which I don't think is down to running just burning the candle at both ends.

    Jezza. I've found this site quite helpful in pre-navving the route. Obviously far too much to print out but a reminder that the route is not a well trodden path and there are a few areas where it looks easy to go off course, particularly in the darkening hours when tired.

    See you Sunday
