Wow...fantastic time Malcs...you've done amazing, especially after only a little taper. I've been trying to get that sub 1:30 for a while now and you've just gone and completely smashed it in very windy conditions. A massive congratulations, im so happy for you.
congratulations to Angela also...another fabulous PB, well done
Thankyou chick for your kind words. I cant think of anything else it could have been last week to have made me feel so rubbish so I'm blaming the blood donation. I have been on the iron tablets all week and do feel much better. Did 13 miles on friday (steady) but didnt feel too bad. I have another XC race tomorrow so we will see if its worked! I wont be giving blood around races again I don't think....just incase. I hope your backs ok and its nothing serious.
Thankyou DS2 also. Ive had a better week of running this week so I'm hoping its onwards and upwards....we will find out tomorrow depending on how I get on. I do have a few races coming up but I haven't seen any as big A races...just something im doing so maybe I need to look at them and set some targets and a training program As at the moment im just doing what I fancy.
Some studies have been done that show some people go into heart failure after a marathon...luckily its only temporally! They have done echos on people pre and post marathons to prove it.
Malcs I think im so lucky I don't pick up more from work. Over the last 6 years ive only had one day of work sick (when I got whooping cough). Around marathon time I did get abit OCD with hand washing though!
