10K Here I Come!

THE Cancer Research 10k I entered all those months ago is finally here and on Sunday I find out how much more training I should have done! The training has been incredibly tough, much harder than I envisaged, and to be honest I can probably do four miles comfortably but will struggle to complete the six and a bit needed on the day. I seemed to hit a brick wall at three miles, and it has only been the last week or so that we have been able to push it that bit further. Three miles seems to be the point at which you have to make a decision about what you are asking your body to do and take things a bit more seriously in terms of diet and training and even wearing the correct clothing. I think if I asked my body now to do a marathon it would say 'no' and probably not that politely, but if I asked it to do 10k it would say 'yes, but start taking things a bit more seriously'! So I am, after Sunday's race I am going to join the Ely Runners and see how I get on. It's at this point that I have to take my hat off to Sarah Fairhust who started training at the same time that I did but is running a very impressive 11 miles. Well done Sarah and good luck to anyone else who is running on Sunday, especially our Run for Liam group, and let's hope we can all raise a lots of money for Cancer Research and make it worth all the effort and also a fitting tribute to Liam.

I ventured out of Ely last week and gave a talk at the Sutton WI. I would just like to say thanks to Sylvia for inviting me as it was a very enjoyable evening and good to see WI flourishing in East Cambs.

Don't forget it's Apple Day on Saturday. Just get yourself along to Palace Green and enjoy some fun and games and some apple related food and drink.
