From miltonic malaise to Madrid marathon in thirty weeks.
just found the time to catch up. Perezoso - well done, very emotional race report and sounds like an incredibly emotional finish. Would have been so easy to give up, so massive well done for keeping going. Sounds like your wife had good fun!
neil - well done to you too, headwinds are nasty things! 1:38 for a half is a fantastic time.
Thanks, mathschick, it certainly was an emotional experience. It's now a week later and - all bar my right knee, which is suffering from overload induced seizure - my body's recovered. It would be great to go out for a gentle recovery run, but unfortunately the gammy knee is going to keep me off the trails for another week, I guess.
I've already got my sights on marathon number two next year (not sure which one yet), but this time round I'm going to have a year to train, which seems a much more reasonable proposition!
A belated thanks mathschick.
How are you doing now Perezoso? Decided on another marathon? What about some interim races at shorter distances?
I've got the Carrera del Agua 10k a week on Sunday, a quick course apart from a short, sharp climb early on and a two km gradual uphill stretch from Santiago Bernabeu to Plaze de Castilla. I'm also hoping to do the Burgos Half Marathon on June 16th. I'm struggling a bit for form at the moment but do want to do these two races before the summer break.
By the way, I've heard some rumours that they are thinking of changing the Madrid Marathon course. Apparently they want to take some of the "sting" out of it to attract more elite runners. Noone's ever gone below 2hrs 10mins on the current course.
Haven't forgot about our Casa de Campo run. Bit tied up with the above-mentioned races and other commitments in the next four weeks but we'll get something sorted, if you're still up for it?
