Hi to all,
I just had my last training session before the big event, in a heat chamber at Kingston University. 1 hour of running and cycling at 38 degrees C and 10 degrees humidity and I am feeling ok. I lost 2.4kg through perspiration in that hour which I am told is very good. Apparently someone before me just couldn’t sweat and therefore can’t cool down, so I guess growing up in Africa has its advantages!
That hour is just a little taster of what is to come. I’m leaving this coming Friday morning to Morocco to start my 6 marathons/ 250km over 6 days and it’s all starting to feel very real. I want to give a big thank you to all of those who have supported my charity (Hope for Children), in particular ETX Capital and most importantly Caroline and my boys who would like to see a bit more of me when I get back.
