CW - its always warm on VLM day. One year I should train in a warm summer and then do an Autumn marathon rather than train through the winter for a warm VLM day, although I coped ok with last week, and all the salt loss (it was all on my kit).
CW - you still have plenty of time to heal up the hammy and still race through the summer, and its only 7 days after VLM.
First run since VLM for me today with an easy 8M, still got slightly sore legs in a couple of places, but my legs stood up pretty well to last week really considering the amount of miles I did. I must try to keep the run frequency up a bit now for the next 52 weeks.
Abbers - I saw your result and guessed you'd got stuck at the start, well played for getting home and bagging your first marathon. VLM is dangerous, I had my heels clipped twice by folks swerving across the road, then there's all the bottle son the floor to dodge too !
CC's report was elsewhere and now Lit has a 4 page report that I must have missed, WTF was that one posted ?
madbark just about sums it up !
one self-enforced week of no running done, the trainers can come out again now.
