End of my running month

Well I've got a two day break now so thought I'd write a quick catch up entry.

18 days till the marathon now.

I'm still unsure what I'm going to do for water. I don't think I'm going to like the water stops... drinking from those cups.... So I think I have no choice but to bring my fuel belt.
I think I just have to play with it to see if I can make it sit more comfortable.
It's so bulky though! I think I'll be a little embarrassed with it but never mind... better than no water.
And it has a nice pouch where I can put some goodies in case I need some extra energy near the end...

Not feeling so depressed/overwhelmed about it today. I've done all I can do.. Just have to perform on the day now.

July km's 248kms Y.T.D 1441kms

Injuries Nothing significant... just general muscle soreness after longer runs

Excuses None although feeling overwhelmed a little..

Upcoming Race Adelaide Marathon - 15th August

Summary Can't complain as I'm on track with my training. I've gotten a couple of 30kms or 30kms+ runs in so the rest is just up to performance on the day.


  1. I cannot believe it is so close! It is amazing how quickly it is getting here, and I'm not even the one running in it. Hahaha! I think the belt is a good idea. Don't want to go without water.

  2. You could see if the Adelaide marathon is supplying water pouches at some of their drink stations. That way if you don't want to drink it straight away you can take it with you. Then when you want it you just tear it/rip the top open (like a sunny boy). They are easier to carry. Or get some friends/family to be at different places in the race holding your water.

  3. The water cups are okay, if you don't mind getting water all over you. Just squeeze them, and tip the water in.

    Still - the water pouches are better.
