After a busy week at work I’m really glad it’s Friday. Do all runners live for the weekends like I do? I’m sure they do!
I’m running the Springbok Vasbyt 25km race tomorrow. Training has been good this week and it looks as if all the cold and stomach symptoms are finally out of my system. I’m ready for a good enjoyable run!
I’ll be taking it easy as this is a very tough race with some monster hills. A quote from the race flyer: “this is an adventure and a challenge. Please be prepared to run/walk half of this race on gravel roads and on very challenging mountain tracks”. That sounds good!
My next long runs and races will all be part of my training for the Mon-Aux-Sources 50km Challenge on 11 September. Easy going will be my motto. Building strength and endurance is now my main focus.
The organizer for tomorrow’s run posted the following on a local running forum:
On Friday, I will be making chalk lines and hammering in distance boards at the right places. But the race is on Saturday. Our Entrytime entries are impressive.
The SA Irish will send their champion bagpiper; the Police’s trumpet player will sound the last post. We will have the most memorable one minute silence.
The last Puma (helicopter) will do its thing. And somewhere in the back a WWII vintage gun will be lurking. If you recover, the best 10/25 ever will await you. Enjoy it. See you Saturday.
How can I not say yeah it’s Friday!?
Have a wonderful running weekend everyone!
