7 Sleeps

Only 7 sleeps to the 95 mile West Highland Way Race. It’s quite a thought that this time next week I will be about to embark on my longest run ever, by some 40 miles. I have been in discussion with my support team and with Ian Minty, my support runner, and I am feeling good about everything.

After a physio appointment yesterday my Achilles niggle got the all clear which is a great psychological boost. There is some scar tissue, most likely from the injury that I picked up at The Cateran Trail Ultramarathon, but the Achilles itself seems ok.

Given that the pain had subsided, I did feel a bit of a fraud taking up an appointment slot but it was reassuring to hear that my Achilles is unlikely to cause me any issues on the day. I was really impressed at the physio service. So, 7 sleeps and counting!
