There were some on the course for whom that would be normal gait PP.
CC2 you could flog them? LD is showing Alan Sugar like skills lately so perhaps a consultation is in order. Re. P&D it's something along the lines of 'don't for a week.' From memory they say something like 'if you really must then be aware you risk injury and delaying further your return to training, your fibres have many micro tears from the strain of the marathon race. If ever there was a time not to run the week after a marathon is it.' And then basically it's a 5 week return IIRC,very gradually building up.
Well I've casually passed this bromance suggestion past my daughter who has sided 100% with ... Dachs and Padams. 'Lol but it's soooo true Pops,' was her instant response.
I'm with you all on this build up. I cannot do 18 weeks and 12 is pushing it. It's the 20+ milers that get to me. If you have consistent miles in the legs the rest of the time a short campaign might be just as effective. I'm going to have a go at shaving off those 7 seconds, although it's a slightly silly exercise given that 2h45 is 2h45 but I need a bit of a break from specific marathon training. A few months on shorter and fun hilly runs should set me up to renew the attempt come the autumn. If I wasn't in Asia I'd do Frankfurt as a training run in the build up to Dubai but it's a bit extravagant to fly back just for that.
PP I can report that both cheese and chocolate were fantastic. Bliss.
My legs feel in good shape but I will hold off until the weekend. This is the time when you can trigger injuries I reckon.
Possibly if I'd spent less time showboating and crowd rousing that would've shaved 7 seconds, but it was worth it
Green & Blacks organic chocolate 100g bars are 3 for £5 at Waitrose. No I don't normally shop there but it's the only s'mket near this part of Devon. The Sea Salt one is simply sublime. Sorry for culinary messages but it has been a while.
