There are only 16 sleeps until WS 2006. There is still 50 cm of snow on
the high trail. It could be really tough going. There are runners still
looking for pacers. Ho, hum. I'll be watching the progress from my
3 days out from the GC100. Haven't had much of a lead up. Ran an easy
5km today with the puppies. A few niggles but that is standard. Once
you toe that line any pre-existing injuries don't count. Guaranteed
there'll be a few after. That concrete path is an absolute killer.
Plan: try and run fairly even splits and not get sucked along too
early. With no Fat Bloke, to tell stories and the entourage of Spud,
Run67 and G it won't be such a social occasion. I'll look for a more
sensible pace and see if I can bring it home stronger than last year.
