Fruit and nuts eaten throughout the day should stop you from pigging out at meal times so it cant be a bad thing. Eating little and often is supposed to be better than starving yourself until meal times. Could also encourage a steady metabolic rate too i guess?
Your best moment: Seeing my dad at the meet and greet, he'd never come to any of my races before this one.
Your worst moment: Slowing down at mile 22, i didnt anticipate how difficult it would be to get going again.
What surprised you most about the day: I'd never raced with such a crowd, and what a difference their support made.
Your most memorable moment: Egging the crowd on for cheers on the last 800metres. That made my day
What your goal was, and how your finishing time compared: I was on target in training for a 4.30 finish but without anticipating how hard the wall was i managed a respectable 4:53. When i orginally set out to start training I set a goal for sub 5 that I was happy to achieve.
And of course, how you celebrated!: FISH AND CHIPS
I read somewhere that you shouldnt look to run till at least the weekend, non impacxt exercise should loosen the muscles up a bit, try swimming or cycling. I too finished my maraton debut at the weekend so hats off to you mate. Im itching to get back out too. Recommend not running just yet though
