Almost had a moment of madness! Self doubt tried to creep in, " go on run the last mile flat out, I think you need to see how well your really going" !
"Piss off self doubt" I said! I've done my training, the long miles,progression runs, and tempo sessions, my 1/2 Marathon time show I'm ready, I'm not having you f**k my big day up.
I know you too well 'Self Doubt' so just shut up!
With that he left in a sulk and I kept to my training plan. :]
From now on I will call my self doubt 'Brian'.
With a name he will be easy to deal with :]
Easy run with tess,Velvet trail = 39 mins
