Vixx - nice marathon photos - but 'ouch' on running most of a marathon with chaffed legs.
OS - well done on getting into London! I'm thinking about another marathon (thanks for the tip about Manchester, Vixx). After the hell that was Sunderland, I only want to do a flat one, so either Manchester, Abingdon, Lochaber (if it's being organised next year) or Edinburgh; but on the other hand the thought of another winter of marathon training doesn't exactly make my heart sing - it's only just starting to get darker at nights but already it's a chore to get out there after work. What I really need is a part-time job with full-time money so I can train in daylight
I did 5 miles (fastish) after work last night and afterwards my right knee was really sore for the rest of the night, which was a bit of a worry. But I put some Voltarol gel on it and it feels better this morning so fingers crossed a bit of rest is all it needs.
Hi Wee Col - did you get the photo I emailed you of me, you and Dasher Dart in the Sanddancer?
I've only done 2 runs since the GNR and they've both been really tiring on my legs. On my 5 miler tonight it felt like the whole of my left leg was gradually seizing up on me - my quad, my hamstring and my calf. My right leg however is fine.
Well done BP. It's now looking unlikely I'll be down to cheer on people doing the York marathon as I'm working the day before (Saturday) and I was hoping to make a long weekend of it . But best of luck to everyone running it.
Was a lovely morning today, but I'm stuck in work this afternoon.
The weather is beginning to get colder, but I'm looking forward to those lovely autumn days, where it's cold but bright sunshine and the leaves start to change colour - magic!
