|BELIEVE in myself|
I know I’ve put in the hard work, although not all runs have gone exactly to plan of course- there are always blips along the way such as getting ill, or a particular training session feeling sluggish and frustrating. But equally there have been highs- I’ve enjoyed pushing myself, as well as fitting in social runs with friends. I’ve run long and, for the first time, I’ve noticed myself actually getting a bit faster, so here’s hoping the speed work has paid off!
A little self-love, some mental encouragement and positive thinking will help me to get to the start line feeling strong, happy and able to enjoy the experience 🙂

“Our Salted Caramel MuleBar Kicks energy gel is a tasty, easy to digest combination of cocoa, pink himalayan crystal salt, agave nectar and brown rice syrup.”
I tried one of the Mule Bar Energy Bars as an afternoon snack, before my evening “run-date” with Leah and it powered me nicely through our 5k until I could get home to have dinner. The Chocolate Orange flavour was amazing too- it felt much too gooey and decadent! I’m intrigued to try the other flavours I got sent- Apple Strudel, Summer Pudding and Eastern Express, which is supposed to be a savoury curry style flavour with garam masala and cayenne pepper- could be interesting!
The Protein Bars contain 14g of high quality protein so they’re primarily designed for recovery, and I’ll definitely be chucking one in my bag for snacking on after Brighton! The addition of banana for added potassium sounds like a great idea.
How do you get over self-doubts as a big race draws near? Have you ever tried a savoury energy bar?
