Just about a week from doing the 12th marathon in 12 months on 26th July. My confidence level is pretty high with a few good training runs under the belt while at the same time I am a bit nervous. A lot of fellow runners and family members are aware that this is the 12 th run putting somewhat additional pressure - I hope everything goes well and I am successfully able to complete the mission that I sent out on 12 months ago! Running wise I am in as good a shape as can be. I did a 2hr 23 minutes 25Km run on 11th July. Followed by a couple of good tempo runs of 9K last week and a decent 12K with Rohit today. Nevertheless, I am not looking at pushing myself to achieve any specific timing - I would be happy to complete between 430 and 445.
The RFL run on 26th July is going to be a mock relay run to practice for the Urban stampede on 9th August and is at the same location of Olde Bangalore resort starting at 7am. As has been the case in the past few marathons done in the RFL organised runs, I hope to start running around 530am with the goal of completing 15K before the start of the RFL run at 7. And again I am expecting the company of RFL runners throughout the race including those of several runners from BHUKMP who are planning to do the full marathon.
