April started well and was the first time I’d nailed all my runs. I’ve then had seven weeks of training, but with no step forward – this needs to change soon so I can really test my endurance.
I had a not so comforting word with ultra-running friend and Profeet Ambassador Gary Dalton, this week.
Time to get serious
Gary is a straight-talking man who grilled me on my prep and race schedule and led me to realise I thought it was a long way off and I didn’t need to think about it. He was not impressed. I haven’t even got a marathon booked in let alone a 50k.
This left me with my first sense of trepidation. Time has flown by and I haven’t taken stock of what I’m letting myself in for.
I have now agreed to do a couple of long course runs with Richard (run manager at Profeet) for familiarity and Gary might join us too. I can’t wait.
