Mind over matter

0830 on a Saturday morning and I'm all kitted up and heading out for Oxford on my bike.  I wasn't sure I'd be able to do it but 65.87 km and 3 hours 12 mins later I arrived back in Banbury.  Just goes to show - mind over matter and anything's possible.

I never believed I could do a full marathon until I actually did it back in 2010.  However back then, it was easier to motivate myself as it was totally my decision to take it on and it helped that I actually enjoyed running.  This time, with Race the Sun, it's a team event and the pressure's on as it's a team from work and I'm the only female in the team.  The training's been a tough slog and I'm counting down the days until I can return the bike to cousin Gemma. 

Matt tired himself out in the garden this morning but he applied some mind over matter and headed down to the market with me to stock up on some fresh fruit & vege.  Brought back lots of memories of the markets in Siracuse and Matt was right at home sampling the hams and olives.
