In less than 3 weeks I will be on a plane to Venice, and have to be honest the nerves are starting to kick in. Have I trained enough? What to expect on the actual day? One of the things that always worry me is the weather, which is something that you cannot influence and I have to believe it will not be raining. I know it’s the end of October, so I do not expect it to be very hot, but a nice warm day would be just perfect, so fingers crossed.
Yesterday I had a long run planned, but it was raining loads, and I did not think I should do it. I will have to swap for one day this week, my last longish run, and then just a few short ones, my spinning classes and taking it easy, need to start saving the energy for the big race.
I ran 2 marathons so far, and the nerves & adrenalin on the actual race day are something I will never forget. This time it will be also a bit different as it will be just me, in a foreign country, but I am not scared. I am very excited to be part of the crowd! I speak a few foreign languages, unfortunately not Italian, but guess I will be fine, and believe there will be a few English people too, maybe even Czech, who knows!
I have also decided to completely cut out alcohol & coffee for the whole of October. This is not only part of my marathon preparation but also due to me taking part in Seven Seas Perfect7 challenge.
I can tell you now, this will not be easy as I love my wine and coffee!
But enough about me and my marathon training, how was your week? Anything you would like to share with me?
