As good a day as any to run a marathon!
Not much to say today - you will be relieved.
I'm feeling increasingly generally tired, but felt okay on the road and a day by myself helped me to concentrate.
I'm still having eating and weight problems - and if I really eat more my body is rejecting it shall we say. But I've a few stone to lose yet and only 6 days left so I won't disappear altogether.
Here I am at the wonderful Old Dungeon Ghyll where they look after me following every Langdale:
My two injuries are steady state. My right ankle doesn't look nice, but if I strap it up I'm confident it's not going to let me down so I can run soft and loose limbed. My left shin - well I have to take more care of that. Windermere doesn't stress it too much, Langdale downhills are potentially dangerous and hurt a lot more. Although a livid colour, it isn't getting any worse so again I have to be reasonably confident.
I cannot assume I'm going to make this until I do - but I thought I'd copy you this comment from a fellow runner which maybe shows I've achieved something already:
"I said when I first heard that you would be doing this round Windermere and Langdale that it would be impossible to even do a 10in10. Really glad you made that comment look stupid and rammed it back down my throat some. You really are a total inspiration and proof that hard work and belief enables people to reach true greatness. Keep going and inspire us all more." - thank you Charles Colby, and it was great to see you on Saturday.
Tomorrow is our OSL Board meeting - I suspect I'll be working harder and longer than the others! I look forward to seeing you all.
