The road is long

Well I have been battling injuries a bit and the milage has really suffered. I got a bit sick the week after the marathon - I guess my immune system dived a little. I have had left hamstring issues, on-going back issues and the last long run my right knee was aflicted with VERY painful ITB.... but apart from that everything is going fabulously well!
As of tonight 50 more days left. I do big milage this week and next week run the long run - 60kms. I have now run the last 34 kms of Comrades - so at least I know what that road looks like. I am apprehensive and excited and doubful and positive. I can feel the end of the race but I have some inkling of the pain as well. Oh boy....
I said to a non runner the other day - well to be precise my Mom - that perhaps this goal was a little too big for me. She said well then I should just not do it. At this stage that is like saying to a horse on the way home from a long day on the range that it should not go back to it stable. I WILL be on that start line and I will give it my ALL on the day.


  1. What is the point of a goal if it isn't too big to comprehend. The bigger the better and all the more satisfying when you do it...and you will.
