The Tour of Fife race plan

The Tour starts on Sunday, six stages starting with a “nice and gentle” Teddy Bear 5 mile road race!

My race plan is as usual.

I’m not gonna run hard, I’ve had a slow recovery from running the WHW race in over 30hours with a wee chest infection.

I’m not gonna run hard, I don’t do short n’ fast, it’ll be a shock to my system.

I’m not gonna run hard, I’ve done no speed work.

I’m not gonna run hard, this is not my distance, I don’t put my shoes on for anything less than a marathon.

I’m not gonna run hard, I’m only doing this for the cakes on the last day.

I’m not gonna run hard, I’ve got a big race coming up soon.

I’m not gonna run hard, AYE RIGHT!

It’ll be the usual Highland Charge in lycra with no tactics other than getting to the finish of each stage as fast as my short fat ploddy legs can go. Brilliant fun! Not running hard!!!
