Hello, everyone, this week has just flown by! And I haven’t even filled you in on the Viking Festival, my brother’s bungee jump, Tenerife or the Queens Baton Relay yet: I’m gonna be one busy blogger 😉
I’m pulling out of the Loch Ness Marathon.
No sad face: it’s the right decision – for now.
When I signed up in January, I underestimated the work that would go into organising my wedding and honeymoon. And we’ve been away a lot which has not helped my training schedule. I’ve also had other stuff going on that has demanded my time and attention. And I’ve had a bit of an ankle issue that’s been niggling. Finally, I have lots of weekends away planned over the next few weeks, so fitting in long runs will be well nigh impossible.
There’s always next year 😀
It now means that I can relax a little more, and enjoy my next couple of weekends celebrating at various Commonwealth Games events.
Hopefully we can go along and support the runners instead.
So, bring on the Perth Kilt Run, the TT10K, the Great North Run and the Great Scottish Run next!
Have you had to pull out of a race before? How did you feel about it?
