I cannot quite believe that we are almost at the end of January, and with the end of January sees two very exciting things. The first is this weekend! I have been looking forward to this weekend since June when I announced I am an ambassador for the National Running Show. Back then it seemed so far away, but now it is finally here!
I am starting to get very excited for the show. There is a huge number of speakers I want to listen to. I cannot wait to visit all the amazing brands, including Thule who are launching new running pushchairs, Run Mummy Run who have been an amazing online community, Saucony to probably spend more money on trainers! and UK Run Chat who are so supportive online seemingly no matter what time of day or night!
There are also a heap of things to do from the treadmill challenge, to a 3D analysis. I am excited to try both and also to talk to someone about nutrition. I know if I had a plan to follow I would but given I haven't a clue about these things I tend to just eat rubbish. I really know I need to fuel better.
Next weekend sees my first challenge of the year and it is slowly dawning upon me the magnitude of the challenge. A 30 mile ultra! My first ultra! Whilst I am incredibly excited I think I am also getting a little nervous. The tapering has started and I have one week left of training before the day arrives. I have been documenting my training on YouTube and will continue to do so.
I have a busy few weeks ahead.
Hope to see you at the Running show this weekend!
