The joining instructions for the Gloucester Marathon arrived in the post this morning, all getting very close now as it’s only one more week to go. Reading through the notes it seems like an ok route although I’m not ecstatic about the fact that it’s 3 laps. Still, it’s mainly countryside so it should be easy to lose track of the landmarks and just plough on.
I think I might actually get back out on the roads tomorrow too, the ice is melting fast now so I think I can wave goodbye to the treadmill and start getting some fresh air again. It’s not been too bad though as running on the machines has really helped to refine my perception of pace so I’m going to put that to the test on Saturday when I do an 8 miler on the open roads.
