I've had a week on the bench, so far.
Achilles problems - boo.
Seems to be taking an age to go away, too.
I've got a half in three weeks but I wasn't going to race it so hopefully I'll be able to use it as a training run.
Aside from that, no plans.
I haven't even finalised a spring marathon yet. Hat in the ring for London (ha).
Paris was my first marathon, having failed to get a place in the London ballot.
Its a great race with good support and a really beautiful city.
If I could give you any advice it would be to use this forum. The people on here are incredibly supportive and knowledgable will keep you going when you are having a low point and cheer you on when you have a high point. They are also great drinking buddies for post race celebrations.
Dont ever worry about asking a question, even if it feels stupid - it won't be.
Its a bit quiet in here at the moment, as we are so far out from the event and the 2nd wave of places haven't been released yet. However, it will get a lot busier and then the fun really begins.
