So here we are with < 36 hours to go to the off.
 
The training’s done and there’s nowt left to do but sit around and relax, so I’m currently taking it easy and resting up with a glass (or 3) of red wine.  I’m writing this, Twittering (@WorTony) about SUGUK and the SharePoint 2009 conference and watching Derrin Brown predict the lottery numbers (ho ho ho).  Obviously, none of this is ideal training warm down but after 4 months of running 4 times a week (twice a week with a weighted pack and military boots) I’ve decided that it’s all now down to the day – I need to turn up on the day and feel good or it’s not gonna be good.
 
I’ve seen it many times before that a professional athlete (I’m not one ;->) can turn up on the day and just not perform (think Paula Radcliffe at the Greek Olympics and others) – this is where I feel I am and reckon that a good day will see me get round in under 1:50 while a bad day may be a really bad day 😦
 
My training schedule has been like this :
I’ve done the distance many  times.
I’ve done the distance and the weight twice
I’ve done just under the distance and the weight many times
I’ve done the distance and the weight and the hills twice
I’ve done just under the distance and the weight and the hills many times
I’ve done the distance and the weight and the hills and the boots once
I’ve done just under the distance and the weight and the hills and the boots a couple of times
 
I’ve built up the weight over the 4 month period and the distance with the weight, and the weight with the distance with the hills – all text book stuff.  I reckon that this schedule means I should be more than capable of meeting the P Coy Challenge – 10 miles, a 35lb pack, military boots and some gruesome hills with wicked names such as "Pussy Hill", "Lick Out Hill" and the killer "Land Of Nod".
 
As they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating and Sunday will tell the tale.
 
I’ll write up my experience of the P Coy Challenge as and when I get the use of my body back.
