Even though I read all the advise about running a marathon, followed a training plan and set what I thought was a realistic time it still hurt.
Don't get hung up on a time. I did and perhaps thats why I still went too fast (although in line with my target) and my legs fatigued badly at 30k.
Take the first one very easy and just complete the distance. I thought I knew better
