It's all been a bit bizarre this week. I have managed to do a few runs covering 7 miles, 4 miles, 3 miles and ended today with 7.5. So pretty much stuck to the tapering plan. It's been hard to motivate myself and I feel like I have given up in my mind. I am really scared that this mindset does not shift by Sunday
I am so worried about not being able to get round and have lost a bit of confidence in my ability to do this. Had a dreadful migraine Friday and yesterday which I think stemmed from stressful night of worrying about the marathon instead of sleeping. Nobody tells you that this thing takes over your life in every way possible!
I did have a cheeky little win on the grand national yesterday which was a bit of a mood lifter. I am amazed I feel quite down about the whole marathon thing. Am off to the physio for last check over tomorrow and then the expo on Thursday. Am handily at our Stratford office so can pop on the dlr after work. Hopefully the grumpy version of myself will have crawled back into its hole by then.
Will be great if the weather is like its been today for next week however I am not getting too hopeful!
