Today is my long run day. I don’t tend to do a long run every week, its more like every ten days now but in between I do short runs. The reason for this is my knees, they cant handle the impact and the severely hurt the day after my run. I am very much looking forward to not having to run this distance again after my race.
Today I am planning on running around 17k. Although, if I am feeling good I am going to carry on and try to get to the half marathon mark – wish me luck!
I’m eating so many carbs today to try and fuel myself for this run, I have pancakes, porridge, fruit and pasta to eat before around 2 oclock. Then I will not eat anything until after my run. I plan to set off at around half 3, this should take me about 2 and half hours to complete.
I will be back with another blog post after to tell you how I got on!
