I even sold my UTA50 ticket, as I can't see myself starting the training needed to prepare for it. When I trained last year for this awesome event (and my training was more of the less-is-more approach) I was coming off the back of a few marathons, and had successively kept my km base quite high whereby a 35km training run seemed normal and easy. This time round this year however? A completely different story. I am listening to my body and taking it very easy lately. Which is WAY ok. There's always next year to do the UTA again, and I intend to get back to training and longer distances in 2019. For now, I will just run for fun, and when my body feels like it. Which is not today, if this incessant rain keeps up! (Newcastle = sometimes the rainiest city on the planet.)
In other, non-running related news: my mum is coming over for a holiday from UK soon! Very excited. Immediately following on from that, my partner and I head to Bali for some international R&R (and maybe the odd volcano trek and adventure and barefoot run along the beaches there). Excitedly excited!!
Have a wonderful week ahead all! Much love, Lou xx
