Tomorrow is the Great South Run in Portsmouth. If I can just keep up the pace I’ll hope to get round in just over 1 hour 10 minutes. I can do that pace for 6 miles, but whether I can hold it for another 4 after that we’ll have to wait and see. I’m feeling good and loading with carbs so it all bodes well at present.
Early start in the morning. We need to be up at 5:30 and away by just after 6 to avoid getting stuck in traffic. Twenty-two thousand runners taking part I hear. I shall wear my British Red Cross running vest with pride!
