MK Marathon 2012 - "Men in Tights" - Week 16 of 16 - Day 5
48hrs to go!
BBC weather forecast for Sunday: "Wet, windy with heavy rain and strong easterly winds -
coastal gales possible" - so much for the sunglasses then!!!
Well we're all trained out now and not much more we can do. The calf seems to be reacting well to
treatment but haven't done a serious run for over 10 days now. It's all been gym work to keep the
cardio up and keep the stress off the calves. We've done a couple of long walks this week, one of
which was a 19miler on the actual route of the course which certainly helped.
We expect the calf to go at some point but uncertain whether we last 13, 5 or 2 miles before it
pings. Needless to say, we'll give it our best shot and hope to get through into Stadium MK at
some point in the afternoon/early evening.
Current fundraising total at the moment is standing at a healthy £1192.12, just over £300 short of
our target. A real big THANK YOU to everyone for your contributions for these 2 worthy causes.
It's been a great support, especially through the latter stages, and has kept us motivated throughout.
A thanks to our sponsor, "Extra Technologies" for their hefty donation and for the printing of the
All that's left to do now is to try to push past that total of £1500 and then the small matter of
actually completing the run on the day. We'll post a final blog along with a photo in the forthcoming
days, but a real big thanks for all the support, and hope to see some of you on the day!
