weather8 days to go before my first actual race – the Rock’n’Roll Edinburgh Half Marathon. The weather forecast indicates I will be running in swimming trunks and a ski jacket. I’m honestly wondering why I signed up for this. Its not the weather; Edinburgh can often have all four seasons in a day. But I’m getting butterflies and have developed an obsession with reading reviews on specific flavours of sports gels and training schedule recommendations. Not that there’s much time left to change what I’ve been doing – about 20 miles a week over the last few weeks. Still, I’ve learned about tapering and carb loading. I like the sound of carb loading.
