And my darling wife, on seeing the course, announced that 'You're gonna DIE!' It's nice to have support.
So it's now down to me to get training and properly, none of this messing about. Signed up for a few Skyrides with Connor, so we'll be out on the bikes, I need to start the running and maybe even - whisper it - the gym.
In addition, I've bought myself a cheap wee pair of hiking boots to get in practice for the West Highland Way walk that I'm doing. Plus, I'm organising a team for a 5-a-side tournament to support Learning Disabilities week and I'm now involved in Oxjam, having signed myself up as promoter so now I need to put together some sort of fundraising musical extravaganza. Add in the uni work and the SVQ and I'm not entirely sure when I'm supposed to eat. But I'm looking forward to them all, I feel that for so many years I've just been dissolving into a big fat ball of telly-watching lard, it feels great to get involved with these things, especially as I seem to have some sort of career objective in mind at last and hopefully these things, in particular the Oxjam thing, will help towards that.
So, yeah, feeling pretty positive about these things and hopefully by the time of the Run, I'll be a lean, mean running machine. 3 hours is a good time for 10k, isn't it?
