Back on the trail
20 miles of trail running with the rucksack this morning in beautiful sunshine. A nice steady pace for 3.5 hours got some miles in my legs which is necessary as there are only 5 weeks to go before I head off for the adventure of a lifetime. I ran with a pal who is training for Ironman and it was good to have company of somoene who understands what I am going through at this stage in the training. The start line is so close yet there is hard work to be done before the tapering starts. At the same time you are trying to avoid injury but need to put in the miles. Tomorrow will be a recovery run and I think I'll leave off the rucksack as my back is feeling the pressure. Time for rest and recovery.
