Tapering right back now just a short less intensive bike ride each day this week. It is actually quite hard to hold yourself back after all these weeks off bashing out mile after mile as hard as you can go – seems as if I am cheating. I’m now worrying about kit and stupid things like that – have I got this ? have I got that? Wow its taking over my every day thinking !! Must learn to relax and try to enjoy it after all its a once in a life time challenge, certainly for me anyway. Once I’m sitting in a bar afterwards with a cold beer all will be good! So my big ask now is please, please try and find a few extra pounds and donate to this worthy cause every penny WILL make a difference – then this event will be a breeze – here’s hoping.
