I did 3 today and felt, heavy legged but not sore. Managed 28 miles on the push bike yesterday and was very surprised how little I felt the marathon in my legs while peddling, must be completely different leg muscles.
Bad day for me. Kind of lost my mojo early March and have been just going through the motions since then. Went after sub 5 but made the school boy mistake of heading out too fast, got to half way in 1:27:30 and blew up around mile 17-18. Walked/ jogged to the finish in 3:28.
Disappointing but have learnt the lesson that 5 months hard training is too much for my old legs. back to the 4 month schedule that has served me well in the past.
