I'm just hitting my big runs in time for my autumn marathon. Today was due to be 30k but right from the start I had no strength in my legs. At 10k I was struggling and slowing but kept pushing on as I knew I had a bit of a long downhill section and thought this may help. It didn't.
I bailed at 20k, despite Mrs O trying to encourage me to continue.
Nothing hurt, until a slight twinge in the groin area in the last few hundred metres but I was shattered.
Hoping it's my 'really bad run' of this season and things improve from now on.
