Last night was the clubs annual dinner and prize giving so we were at Zitto's in North Berwick. I've been hearing good reviews about this place so I was really looking forward to it.
Excellent food. Really good. I thought I was about fit to burst at the end of it. The food just kept coming, but it was so nice I didn't want to leave anything (so I didn't). Italian food - bring it on. I'll never understand how some runners can get bored of pasta when they are carbo loading.
That said. With what I ate last night I feel like I've carbo loaded in advance for my next two marathons!
I could probably count on one hand the number of times in a year I have three courses in one meal, so to have four last night was a bit of a challenge.

Problem was I felt sluggish today and, even leaving my run till a bit later on, I didn't feel "in the zone".
But "needs must" and all that and I popped the shoes on and headed out the door. I actually wanted to go a bit of a run anyway as I got a new pair of trail shoes on Tuesday and for one reason or another I haven't been out in them yet. Given that I'm away to try my hand at a 15k trail race tomorrow (Devilla Forest 15) I thought it might be a bit of an idea to try them out and make sure they are comfortable.
Seemed to be OK, so I'll see how I get on tomorrow.

Entered the Lasswade 10 for next weekend as well. A bit of an old favourite for me - but it's also a race that I "fear" in a way. It's a good indicator, early on in the year, as to how you've managed your winter training and how your likely to cope in the coming months!

I'm making tea tonight....what else? Pasta!
