Hi BRB, I'm feeling exhausted so far in the taper, how mad is that?!
Well I did just do 2 weeks of Easter camp, so had to get up monster early most days to fit training in.
Will be back to shifts this week, which means not finishing til 9pm, but I have the whole morning to myself, which works for me, although it will actually be 2 months since I did late turn, so I've done my usual and have taken Thursday and Friday off so I can freak out properly.
I think I'll do what SMC suggested and leave the possibility of sub 4 open at halfway, but not be too dismayed with 4:15,
A friend who is on my start has 4:22 from her first marathon, and has asked if she could run with me to get a PB, oh no not that again I hear myself cry! We've never run together before, but it might be good for me to have a little task.
Amy - why not start planning your next big adventure to help with the inevitable slump?
Amy - what a saga - you managed to convey the true epic status of the marathon to the reader, and how amazing that Steve Marathon Coach was able to run in with you - that's France for you.
Good luck to all at Manchester tomorrow!
Just a steady parkrun for me this morning - interesting how teh difference between going for it and holding back is only 44 seconds....tomorrow I'm doing a 6 mile hospice fundraiser, no numbers, no times, easy easy easy..
