Well it is only a few more days until the Tely10. I would be lying to you if I said I was not nervous or a little worried. If I am being honest I am not as prepared as I would like to be. With the weather lately, I have not been out walking as much as I wanted. I have been getting up to 8k walks which take me about 90 minutes so I should finish in about 3 hrs. These 8k are on trails which have various inclines and declines and can be uneven. On the plus side my thoughts are when I on the road it will be easier as it is on pavement and generally flatter. I also imagine the adrenaline and the crowds cheering you on help with the pace.
According to the weather it will be approximately 19 degrees by the time I finish so I am glad it won’t be too hot. Hopefully it is windy and no humidity.
Finally, for anyone who has participated before I need your help. I have some questions that I am looking to get answered:
- What should I eat the night before or that morning?
- Is there any preparation that I should do before I head to the race?
- Is there anything I should bring with me besides water?
I am as ready as I will ever be for this Sunday. Wish me luck, hopefully I won’t need it.
