“if this is redemption, why do i bother at all
theres nothing to mention, and nothing has changed
still i’d rather be working at something, than praying for the rain
so i wander on, till someone else is saved”
Marathon training means eating is important
Carbonara (AT 9:30 AM!)
And the meal to dead all meals; duck breast on a bed of red cabbage & dauphanoise at the incomparable; Eat17
But when is it ever that serious Candice?
It has been yet another week of stunning revelations, sadness, spiritual growth, tiredness, tongue biting…yada yada yada TIREDNESS!
See, I can’t get enough of two things.
Food & Sleep.
If i’m not doing one, I’m investigating the other. And I ain’t even mad at myself. Covering ann average of 25miles per week ain’t no play ting. But imagine my delight (yet confusion) when I hopped on the scale to find that I’ve lost half a stone! I know! From where? My brain? Either way, it proves that science is a funny thing but diets are funnier. I run to eat, not the other way round.
This week was also the week of the Swoosh. Great emails, meetings and friendships have led me to be blessed with some awesome opportunities. I am humbled to be involved, on any level, with such an influencial brand.
In love with my LunarSwift FLASH kicks
Can’t wait to break these in. Thanks to Swoosh for the constant swag!
Finally, I end this post with some RDC love. The response to Chazza putting the word out that my long runs were now too lonely to bear has been incredible.
And so with Dominic at the helm, the LSRCrew (LongSundayRun) has been born.
Everyday, people go out of their way to help me.
And I remain very grateful.
As the marathon looms closer, I m finding this a more emotional journey than a physical one. The breakdown came earlier than expected. And that was a blesssing in disguise. As the runs get longer, my spirit soars higher and that will be my advantage. And even if i fail myself, the love of my crew will get me through.
