Centurions on Saturday. Could be the last one

It’s a tough old 20km on the legs up Rhodes Drive and through Cecilia Forest. Wow, did I bitch for the first half, I didn’t realise just how tired I was after Oceans last week. Luckily everyone else had run it too so we were all moaning about our sad heavy legs. Beautiful run though as ever, but a good reminder for me just how long a heavy run or a big mileage week takes to disappear even after the noticeable stiffness or soreness has gone. Got to be disciplined now, with 5 weeks to go I need to balance recovering from Oceans with enough mileage to keep me ticking over and then the correct amount of tapering to ensure I’m a coiled spring on the start line. Many runners mess up their Comrades in the last few weeks by doing too much. Got to stay focussed on the plan.
