THE IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING! VIRGIN LONDON MARATHON 2010
Here I am, standing on the very edge of a ginormous cliff, waiting to jump off!
Like a little bird about to take it's maiden flight, will I go soaring into the clouds or tumble down into the rocks and disappear into the crashing waves! Yes it's Marathon time again! It only seems like yesterday when on a freezing dark winters day I was looking through Marius Bakken's training plan, thinking jeez can I really do all this training and come out the other side?
The answer is yes! I'm fitter, stronger and maybe even a little wiser.
I'm ready, you bet I'm ready!
I changed my diet and lost 10 pounds.
I changed my running mechanics, so I can take advantage of the 'muscle stretch reflex ' principle.
I've changed my breathing pattern so my body will absorb more oxygen into the working muscles.
I changed my shoes to ones that will give me maximum return of energy.
I've worked on mind training and positive thought!
So here I am now, on the very edge of the cliff, ready to jump! From here on in, the time for words is over, the time for action is now, it's time for guts and determination and a belief that the impossible is just a restriction on my perception of the possible!
IT'S TIME TO FLY!
See you on the other side:]
THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENTS AND SUPPORT, IT MEANS A LOT TO ME, CHEERS :]
