Firstly, I’d like to say a huge thank you to those who have donated to my JustGiving page so far. Your donations to Macmillan Cancer Support mean a huge amount, and spur me on to continue training hard to cross the finish line!
Secondly, sorry for the lack of radio silence over the past couple of weeks – If you follow my Instagram account you’ll have seen there hasn’t been an awful lot of running going on recently, for lots of different reasons…
The only run I’ve actually managed in the past two weeks. After a weekend away at my sister’s hen do, this was exactly what I needed.
The rest of the week was spent either with a migraine, at work events or panicking about having not packed for my holiday. The saving graces were all of the below – being stressed is hungry work don’t you know?
The trials and tribulations of week 8 were completely offset by spending week 9 skiing in the French Alps. I had originally planned on sticking to my normal diet, but quickly realised that what I really needed more than anything was to just relax, eat what I wanted, drink what I wanted and be safe in the knowledge that 7 hours a day skiing would help to keep my training somewhat on the straight and narrow.
‘Letting go’ is something I’m going to write about in a separate post, but it did me the world of good and I’ve come back completely re-invigorated and ready for the final 8 weeks of training before the big day!
