In my taper week Iâ€™ve had two easy runs before work on Tuesday and Thursday. I felt really good on both runs and certainly feel ready for Saturdayâ€™s 42 mile ultra. I canâ€™t say I feel 100% prepared as itâ€™s only 8 weeks since the Lakeland 100 so it is what it is.
I put down sub 7:30 for my gold medal goal but itâ€™s always a bit difficult when I havenâ€™t been round the whole course.
I like to have some idea of where I need to be at each checkpoint so Iâ€™ve worked out a bit of a plan.
I will be aiming to keep my heart rate around 140 so it will be interesting to see how close I am to these splits.
I have 31 guesses for my ‘Guess My Timeâ€™ competition so if you want to take part you have until 6pm tonight (Thursday)!
