It’s taper time again!

In two weeks time, we will be heading 400 miles north to take part in the Baxters Loch Ness marathon, it’s come around far too quickly and I don’t feel ready.

As I was coming back from an injury I followed a beginners training plan. Whilst this felt like the right thing to do post injury, I’m left feeling like I haven’t done enough and I feel unprepared.

I’m not knocking the beginner plan, it’s a great starting point, but for my Manchester training I followed an advanced plan which had me training 6 times a week so I do feel like I’ve been very lazy in comparison.

I’ll find out in on the day if I’ve done enough to get around the course which is my only aim. I have no goal time in mind, for me, it is about enjoying it. It’s simply a long weekend away with friends with a 26.2 mile sightseeing trip, thrown in!

The race has rave reviews – listed in Runners World as one of the top ten marathons to do. The route looks stunning so I hope the weather is kind so I can take some good photos. Of course, I will be on the lookout for Nessie, if I don’t see her there will be trouble 🙂

Anyone else taking part?
