No I am not marathon fit.
No this will not be a PB attempt.
Yes I will get to catch up with Greg Smith and have a few beers in Geelong.
Yes I am aware that this is 45km not 42.2.
Yes I will probably suffer and struggle - yes more OUCH.
Yes I am setting mini-goals for the event.
Yes I will be posting photos and race updates via my twitter feed @runpexrun #PexRunsGOR.
My training for the last week has been pretty solid. 800m intervals at around the 4.25 pace mark and my longer runs seem to be much easier. I squeezed in 10k then 16k on Friday and Saturday last week. Then 10k Monday, 6x800s yesterday and another 5k today.
I hope Big M is feeling better so we can knock out a tough session tomorrow. Then I plan to run 20k on Saturday.
