Just over three weeks to go. I went down with a cold at the start of the week having done 18 miles on Saturday followed by 6 on Sunday. Was supposed to do Tues Wed and Thurs (8m, 11m, 8m) but had to miss them all as I had a very sore throat, a cold felt crap and feel like I have a chest infection. Got some antibiotics from the docs yesterday and did a 6 mile run on the treadmill today, only I had to stop as I now have diarrhoea. Just my luck.
I should be doing a 20 miler tomorrow. My last one. I wanted to go for a sub 3.30 marathon but have shelved that and will settle for a sub 4. It is my first marathon so think I should just try to enjoy it rather than put too much pressure on myself. I don't think I'll be doing the 20. I could have moved it back a week and done it next weekend but I am doing the Blackpool half marathon and was intending to do it at 8min/mile pace to see how I felt at the half marathon point.
Not really asking anyone anything. Just feeling sorry for myself.
