I have been a bit quiet on the Blog front this week due to some "family stuff" which needed my full attention and such did not get my last run in on Thursday as planned but I am totally happy with that as my calf is a bit tight and is loosening up nicely for Saturday's long run in Aldershot, England.
As you can see from the picture I am using my old faithful "Jezza Race Box" which is going to sit happily in the boot of my car while I trundle around 5 x 10 mile (16km) very hilly laps of the course ready for me to snack away if and when necessary. The difference with this type of race, being laps, allows me the luxury of having extra sets of clothes, some favourite drinks and snacks.
The sad thing is that this is the very last Caesar's camp as the administration of the race is proving to be very difficult with the Ministry of Defence who require heaps of paperwork and I am desperate to finish it this time as I have a few demons to fight after my 2009 attempt when I pulled my hamstring after running after London to Brighton too soon without proper recovery in 2009.
Saturday promises, rain, thunder and lightning, puddles and mud and will be a very, very tough run, would I want it any different?
