Meanwhile, the count-down to my upcoming half is down to 6.5 days. The limited time to the run, the pain in the outside of my lower left leg, the very limited number of runs I did in the previous two weeks and the fact that I have not done a 21k run this year promises to make things ... uhm... interesting. As I promised a number of people to do the run - they were even good enough to spend money on the cause - I simply cannot throw in the towel. After the run - if my foot hasn't broken off from my leg - when I am confined to the couch until I can walk again, I will let you know about how things have gone.

The missus has been following a particular blog for some time (the one that inspired me to write I Run). The lady that writes the blog mentioned something about a new uber-breakfast, called overnight porridge. Doing some Googling, I found many pages on how to prepare it and ways to make it palatable.
In other places in the web, I found tips for making it even more healthy, by adding the magical ingredient of Chia seeds. To quote the Huffington Post:
The recipe boils down to the following:
* Take one cup of rolled oats
* Mix this with one cup of yoghurt
* Add three table-spoons of milk
* Add seeds and dried fruits to flavour
* Mix and put in the fridge until the following morning.
Should my run end in disaster, I am looking to the innate goodness of my new-found (and very tasty) breakfast!
