any more details???
Cheers Paul, see you tomorrow.
Can't walk today. My legs feel fine, really fresh considering (though I had to walk my mate from mile 16 over the finish line pretty much!) but there's a horrid pain in my right leg between my shin and ankle. God knows what it is, and I've never felt this after any run of any distance. Any ideas what it could be? The walk in centre were very helpful (rest it and maybe put some ice on it love) but it is absolutely killing even with it elevated.
Fantastic day yesterday though, congratulations to everyone who took part. A really friendly bucn to run with, full of plenty of encouraging words.Well done to Kaja for organising this, she'll have learnt plenty and maybe she'll put it on next year so we can be equally mental and have another go at it? Nice to also prove some of the doom merchants wrong, as the whole day went off without a hitch. We all arrived, run a marathon and picked up a medal - what more can you ask for?
I sort of wish my mate wasn't there though, so I could've had a good crack at posting a decent time. Not happy with 5:35 considering my previous time was an hour faster, but I suppose it is good he finished his first marathon.
Paul,thats a tremendous performance over 2 days,i was in awe of all the people doing the double today,incredible mental strength shown by all of you.Well done
Thoroughly enjoyed this because of the support and camaraderie that you just don't get at bigger events. Congratulations and thanks to Kaja for taking it on, and raising a load of cash for good causes.
Jakesy - unexpected delight to see your ugly mug this afternoon . And thanks for the kind words. I may be fat, but I can still run a bit! Hope to see you again soon. For the record, 3hrs 1 minute for me today (good for 1st fat bloke) after yesterday's 3hrs 31 minute.
Delighted to say that my better half ran 3hrs 31 yesterday, and 3hrs 34 today to pick up all the female prizes. Thanks to Anthony, her running companion today - not as good-looking as her running partner yesterday, but supportive nonetheless
Respect to all finishers, particularly those completing the 'double'.
Thanks Kaja and everyone else for making the experience happen.Not the most scenic marathon but job done.Damondo wrote (see)

Could be: 1) Shin splints; 2) Stress fracture; 3) ??? Tunnel 4) Other
All benefit from rest, ice, warmth, massage, elevation,... The most important thing is to ease back into your running and make sure that you haven't injured yourself seriously - i.e. this is just normal marathon wear and tear - or if you have a proper injury then you are treating it properly and not just running through the pain.
In short, monitor the situation, get professional advice and err on the side of caution.
