Run: 2.46 miles
Time: 20 minutes 59 seconds
I dunno what happened to my Garmin at lunchtime. I stood outside for a couple of minutes chatting to Sue from the coffee cart about last night's Chelsea game before I set off, so it should have had time to locate me. It was raining, so the cloud cover was quite thick, maybe that confused it?
Anyhoo, a last "run" before the marathon (apart from a very very gentle jog on Saturday), calls for 20 minutes. I opt to run up to Sutton Courtenay round past the shops and back to work. Round about 2½ miles, so will be a fraction over the time, but not by much. I get the benefit of pushing myself that little bit further without overdoing it.
So my 16 week training plan is almost at an end. In that time I've run 402 miles. I've Cycled 94 miles. I've swum over 15k (600+ lengths). I've rowed nearly 4 miles and done about 2000 ab crunches (sit-ups). This has totalled about 100 hours of training. 62 runs, 27 classes, 4 gym sessions, 14 swims, 7 cycle rides and just 24 days of rest.
And if I get into next year's London Marathon, I'll be starting it all over again in December!
