Call it backwards, but I ran a 30k race at 2am this morning in preparation for Gozo Half marathon next weekend…..
I was not properly trained for this. If you read this here you will have seen that two months ago I was finding walking pretty tricky.
I have long been interested in ultra-running, but was putting it off til I felt ready. I decided about 6.5 weeks ago to enter Gozo 55k next year, as ‘ready’ may never come. Then I decided it would be a good idea to try the 21k version of that race this year, to see the course.
As this race is at the tail end of school Easter holidays, when no childcare means running is harder to fit in, I decided I would do the Puttinu’s care 30k night walk* as training, and run as much of it as I can.
