A Tough Week. Doing Nowt.

This last 6 days have been very tough. I have been wanting to run but resisted, hence I think has made me feel very tired, or is it the nerves??
I was going to go for a light run on Wednesday evening , but had forgotten I had a long overdue MRI scan at Carlisle for my ongoing knee problem at 5.50pm.
At time of posting this (8.45am) I still have a load of things to arrange but at least im of work today.
The weather looks like its going to be breezy and showers, but I cant do anything about that, its not as if i will melt or anything.
One tiny issue that is bothering me is not having anybody to rope Broad Stand for us, which means we will have to carry a rope with us, but again its not the end of the world.
So, that's it, at 1am on Saturday morning I will leave the Moot Hall and hopefully have a very memorable 24 hours on the tops.

Best of luck Stu. Don't worry about about how you feel today - I felt totally weird last Friday, doing nothing, but once you're on the move it'll all fall into place. Remember the most important bit - it's a great day, enjoy it!!!!

Break a leg (strictly in the metaphorical sense of course)!

Stu - hope it all goes well. You have certainly put the mileage and preparation in, so now all you have to do is...reap the benefit, and enjoy your day.

I'll be thinking of you as the day goes by. In fact, I have set my alarm for 01:00am for that very reason. Don't know how long I'll stay awake for, but I feel it's the least I can do.

And DON'T START OFF TOO FAST.

Enjoy it

Alan

All the best Stu. You've done all the training and the recce, time to try and relax. We know you're more than determined enough to get through the shit bits.

Tomorrow will be one of those days that you will remember forever.

Most importantly, measure once, cut twice !

See you at Dunmail.

ha ha, seen your comment on Gary's blog. Rest assured, you were not forgotten.
May even see you along the way. Just hoping it is not the same blistering pace that you boys set the last time we did leg 4.

Wishing you the best of luck,
Clare
