Away with the fairies....

Well I was, briefly, after my lunchtime massage yesterday. However I am now well and truly back in the real world.

I have started carbo loading today

3 SLEEPS TO GO!!!!!

Yesterday's session - easy run

Time/weather - 5pm / windy, cloudy, 20*c
Distance - 9km
Time taken - 45.59min
Av pace - 5.06min/km
AHR - 151; MHR - 169

Good run. For the last 3km I felt like I was flying, such a good feeling. So there is some life in these tired legs! The long range forecast currently says "3*c-19*c for Sunday, frost then sunny". It better be warmer than today because its bloody freezing right now (11.5*c at 1.30pm).

This morning a friend gave me a Lindt Gold Bunny (dark chocolate) and an Old Gold chocolate rabbit for Easter, plus a block of Lindt dark chocolate (85%) for after the marathon. Can't wait!

Better than being stolen by the gypsies like I thought you had been during bloggus interuptus.

You will need to do extra carb loading to get some winter insulation on with those temps!

Can't you do something about that weather before we soft Queenslanders get there!

Oh yeah, and good luck in the race! Sounds like you are ready to go. :)

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ..... not sure if I will make the start as I will be too busy building snowmen and getting my tongue frozen on stuff.
