So with just 7 days left before the big run in Nice, the excuses are starting my small interest in running is in the mud and not going anywhere fast.... well actually not going anywhere at all yhe thought of running brings tears to my eyes of boardom the constant plodding km after km. Some may say ive hit the wall but that would of involved running. My fitness is good and training is going well both on the bike and on the water especially in the slalom boat. I spent the day yesterday paddling with the irish slalom development squad with some good success. With a medium release from leixlip lake the river liffey was alive paddlers swarming to make use if the water with the Salmon Leap canoe club WWR taking place upstream at Sluice went to palmerstown, setting short courses of varying difficulty and taking advantage of the flood.
With only 7 days to go until the half marathon im determined to do it, the excitement and buzz if the crowds will get me in the mood, and if not the motivational beer on the beach at the finish line will!
So my aims for this week are to do something exciting and to do at least a couple of handy runs make sure the feet and legs remember what they need to do!
