It’s 4:45am (again) I’ve slept for 4 hours and I’m still going out for 10km

I’ve come to realise that 50% of the training is psychological. I didn’t need to do 10km this morning, could have stayed in bed an extra hour and it wouldn’t have made a difference. Getting up in the dark when you can’t face another run, day after day is half the work. Teaching the mind to cope with exhaustion and not stopping is what gets you the medal, because when everything goes to hell at 7okm, that tough little voice you’ve been training is the only thing that will hold you together.

Running notes:
My house – Kloof Nek – 1km over the top – Kloof Nek – My house
Distance: 10km
