Whoever knew that running 5 mediocre kilometers could feel so satisfying?! After having been laid up sick, unable to run since last Tuesday, it felt good to step up on the treadmill today. I did 5 easy kilometers, mixed up with some easy hills intervals, and although I wanted to carry on I decided that rather than pushing myself soon after an illness I should be smart and stop.
It's not long until the marathon, and despite doubting that I'll run very fast, at least I have to give it a go. I can't just give up now, can I?! Too much training's gone into this marathon and you know what? It's pretty spectacular to run a marathon and the happiness you feel when passing the finish line is unrivaled.
