Relaxed, raring and ready.

Suddenly 6 days to go seems like an age simply because Ive got myself to where I want to be mentally and physically and now I just want to get on with it.

 Getting the balance between keeping a lid on the fire that burneth beneath and staying relaxed is tricky as i’m not a patient person! My heart says “lets kick some arse”  but my head says “be cautious and dont over-do things”. Early nights, plenty of stretching, keeping well hydrated and relaxing will continue to form part of my taper process. This gets blended in with low intensity runs, swimming drill sets and half weight/double repetition weights work.

I’ve done some good runs since recovering from the bronchial infection and longer-term hip problem. I feel very relieved the hip hasn’t reacted and would like to thank the medical team very much.

The coiled spring is getting tighter every day but I’ll have to hold it down for another 6 days when I’ll be  fully ready to unleash.
