Tomorrow is Ultra day!!!!!!!!!!!!
So as you can imagine things are in a turmoil here. I swing from ‘can’t wait’ to ‘OMG what have I done’, seriously having more mood swings than a teenager and I should know as I live with one, who can be all 7 dwarves in an hour!
With one thing or another training has not been as I intended but right now I am working on the theory that it would be tough even if I had made every training run, and seeing as its not a race I shall be taking it easy, snapping pics and eating copious amounts of peanut butter and cake en route but maybe not together.
My main concerns are
- The two am start!
- Running with the back marker and needing a comfort break
- Falling over
- Carrying everything-the mandatory kit is heavy, to say nothing of the food
- How much will it hurt!
Hubby and Madam are meeting me at half way point so I can change and stock up on some food and then will meet me at points along the way from there, which will be nice and something to aim for and look forward to. Then yesterday a new club member has offered to run some of the distance with me which is so nice and I shall welcome the company. Just hope I am on my best behaviour!
So this is the route map
keeping the sea on the left and following the coastal path Weymouth to Exmouth, doesn’t like that far on the map does it?
Really looking forward to it, a new adventure, I’ve not run any of the first half and only walked a little bit of it so lots of new scenery to see and am hoping for a cracking sunrise.
