What's the little Woody like? I've done the UK 70.3 and yes its a tough one... not sure how you swim, cycle and run 70 miles entirely uphill but still end up back where you started!
it's the only time i've strayed out of olympic distance territory and i'd like to return for conveniance the little woody seems to suit (can't afford the time to step up to a full IM distance yet) but i can't seem to find much about it.
Probably just nerves, you'll also begin to imagine sore throats, colds,flu like conditions etc. your legS will feel heavy and youll have no energy, just your bodies friendly way of undoing all of your hard work. Good news is that it's just per race paranoia and come race day you'll feel fine... Probably!
once went to our have restaurant on V-day, because it was so busy they had a set menu and it cost more! so we paid more than what we'd normally for food we didn't want! But they did give my wife a free plastic rose!
Can't be bothered to read what's already been written, but for me and where the marathon distance really separates itself from a half (for example) is the strain it takes on your body whih takes months of running for equivalent times (not distances) to build up. In other words 4 hours of running pounds your legs, tendons, ligaments, joints, back, it chaffs parts of your body that can't be discussed on such forums and just generally hurts.
Yes you could do it, but believe me after 16 miles you'll wonder why you bothered, half the fun of these events is accomplishing the training load involved, to get to the start line of any marathon knowing you've already done what it takes to get round is half the battle and half the reason why your there. So defer, start again next year and do it properly.
