There was no fist pumping and channelling Rocky Balboa and eye of the tiger this morning. Instead it was a case of stumble out of bed, make a coffee hoping that it would wake me up, struggle into my running gear and blearily face the darkness outside knowing I had 16km to cover.
I enjoy running, really I do but sometimes the monotony of marathon training really gets to me. Day after day after day of running. This week my total will be 92km, some of that done early in the morning, before it gets light. Tomorrow it’s more of the same – I will run 26km.
