So with the 10k in mind, I frantically started googling ‘train for a 10k in under 4 weeks’ training plans- thank you Runners World for having such plans for moments like this! So in order to even attempt to achieve my 10k goal, I have opted for the run 5 times a week plan. Sounds a little crazy baring in mind that my marathon training only involved 4 runs a week, but I’m hoping that because the distances are less that my body will recover faster after long run Sundays!!
I am not feeling overly confident about the 20km that I will be cycling in 3 weeks time. I’m not so worried about the distance, more about it being part of a race, meaning that other cyclists WILL be riding near me (unless EJ is super slow or super speedy in her swim leg…fingers crossed!) I’m also irrationally scared of falling off my bike- despite my very snazzy floral helmet to protect me.
We were all given different colour wristbands on entry that lit up during certain songs. It got everyone jumping and waving their arms around. We had a great time singing along to some of their old songs and a number of the classics. It’s the second time that I’ve seen Coldplay and they just get better and better.
