Not long now, Annie, are you excited?
A text came in from my lovely friend J as Husband and I were driving home from the Wednesday night run with The Running Group.
Excited and nervous!
The clock is ticking, the days and hours between now and 8am on Sunday 17 November are trickling away at a rapid pace!
Point to Pinnacle, all 21.4kms, all 1250m rise in altitude of it, is something I’ve been wishing for, dreaming about, turning into a running plan and over the last 12 weeks training very hard for. Hills, hills and more hills. Running undulating distances. Speed work. Core strength exercises and lots of leg work (wall sits, planks, squats burpees and so much more). I’ve lived my training plan and made it happen.
The anticipation is simmering in my stomach unbelievably.
Deep breaths Annie, remember your training.
Remember the race is won in the weeks of training.
You can do it!
Now it’s time to focus, to believe, to visualise… nearly there… the Holy Grail is just around the corner… oh and one minor detail, UP A JOLLY HUGE MOUNTAIN!
Point to Pinnacle I’m looking forward to meeting you.
Happy running 🙂
