Food – lots of good, lots of notsogood.

Exercise – about 12 k in 70 minutes.


Very hot in Sydney yesterday (31 C in spring!), so didn’t enjoy the run to Circular Quay that much. Felt awkward, sore and out of breath. I’m really hoping that’s just the taper, but I just couldn’t get comfortable. I was running with a backpack, but I’ve done that before so it shouldn’t have been a problem. I’ll be doing some light exercise every night this week so we’ll see how it goes.

Less than a week to go. Just finished reading ultra-marathoner Lisa Tamati’s autobiography. The woman is a machine and the book taught me a thing or two about focus and pushing through barriers (both mental and physical). This time next week I’ll know if I’ve got what it takes.
