So if you read my post from Friday you’ll probably be aware that we haven’t actually done THAT much training this week, so there’s not THAT much to recap. We did get out for our 5k on Saturday. I found the run difficult, I found it hard to regulate my breathing which is not uncommon for me and ended up gasping and gulping which was annoying. The leaves have started to fall from the tree’s now and the ground around the lake was covered in slippery wet leaves. Nevertheless we managed to make it through the whole 5k unscathed!
So with less than a week to go until the Wine and Dine Half Marathon and only 4 more days until we fly to Florida I guess this is the last training recap in preparation for this race! How mad to think that by this time next week it will be over! I feel happy and sad at the same time!
I’ve obviously been stalking accuweather to find out how hot it is going to be in Florida. Now that it’s less than a week away i’m starting to think it’s probably a little more accurate, and it is NOT GOOD NEWS!
20 degrees!!!! at night!!!! that’s warm people!!! that is too warm for this British girl! A part of me is probably going to be miserable if it’s that warm, but i’m hoping the Disney magic along the course will take my mind of it. It could still change I guess… last week it said 13 degrees! 13 degrees would be better… go back to 13!!!
We have managed to smash through our fundraising target of £500 for Make-A-Wish UK so thank you so much if you have sponsored us, and if you would still like you please don’t let the fact that we have met our target stop you – every little bit raised is going towards a wonderful cause!

Missed this training run… whoops! Should have done it but the taper crazies (see last post from Friday if confused) plus work/study stress got in the way!!
See excuse from Tuesday!
Ran 5k using run/walk intervals of 2 minutes running and 1 minute walking. Average pace 12’20” per mile.
Went for a 3 mile walk along the front. Swansea sure was looking beautiful this afternoon!
So this time next week it will all be over! We will try to get a run in on Tuesday, then it’s off to the airport on Wednesday night ready to fly out on Thursday morning. Hitting the expo Friday and then running the half on Saturday night! Can’t believe it’s almost here! Wish us luck!
