Leg update - it was my posterior tibialis that went pop during the marathon (not calf) but my sports therapist has said I can try a gentle run at the weekend. The treatment was very painful last night. But no pain no gain...
Although it's a 'young' race it has already been classified as a bronze medal race by the IAAF and quite rightly so as it's exceedingly well organised. Residents have really got behind the marathon in a big way. Lots of sweets etc on offer and along the leafy residential section there are usually several houses blaring out music to keep us runners entertained.
Well done, Monty. That wind was really tough in places - especially up from Kilmainham Gaol along the that long slightly upwards 'drag'. I really loved running through Phoenix Park.& ChapelIzod. the last 2 miles were fab too - loads of support.
See you at Brighton, Monty. it's my 'home' marathon and I've run every one so far. The support is phenomenal. 3-4 deep along the main part of the seafron just before/after the half way mark.
Be prepared for a couple of hills & some cliff top undulations in the first 8/9 miles.
