The final straight(ish)

No. of km done: 762
No. of km to target: 238
Conditions: Sunny and warm (which is somewhat bizarre, given the date)
Starting music: Mr Brightside by The Killers
Finishing music: Nothing, because my Walkman battery died after one bloody song :(

Well I'm on the downhill bit* - despite injury (which is still with me - I don't know whether my left achilles tendon aching is making my right knee hurt because I'm running awkwardly to compensate or vice versa) I've passed the 750 km mark and still going. I am, admittedly, a wee bit behind after getting over my various twangs, but just 15 km or so and I still have time to make that up without busting a gut. One or two slightly longer runs to claw it back and I'll be fine - but slightly longer being the key as I can't risk pushing it to clear the backlog in one go. Currently I'm OK albeit not 100% because of the aforementioned leg probs, and I don't want to push my luck as another lay up could scupper me at the final hurdle.

What I am going to push though is my sponsorship stuff - I'm still not past a quarter of what I want to raise. Which I'm not that surprised about - if I were sponsoring me I'd probably wait a while to see if I could do most of it first too - but I do want to rectify it.

*Sadly, not literally downhill. That would be lovely, but unlikely unless I move to the top of Everest in a week or so.
