o4S - i would have been miffed at all that running then missing out on the pub
freemers - you sound like you're marathon training already!!
pink - Wokingham half training starts now
looks like I've recovered ok now a few toe nails have fallen off! couple is sixes over the weekend and a trendy 5 yesterday. Will give myself a few more weeks of easy stuff. Really recommend the marathon though. Fantastic course. Not hilly. Even the climb up to Antibes wasn't much If you regularly run hills. might try and wack out a parkrun in the next few weeks, then I've got the Reading Santa Run for a laugh and a 10 miles muddy hilly gutbuster run 28th december.
back home now. Very sore toe nails and tired legs but I set out to do what I wanted to do for a change!! Started slow and stayed strong to the end. The rain got worse as it went on. But it's such a lovely route all along the med You didn't notice it until the end. I love running abroad and I love kilometers. They just go so quick!! I finished in 3:28.34. The last 2k was hard as my toes were hurting as my trainers weighed a ton as they were so wet! Few days rest now!
O4S - you make it sound so enjoyable!!! Well done.
Currently sat having breaky. Weather conditions are 16 with a NE wind and as I'm running from east to west along the coast it hopefully won't be too bad. Light showers forecast and 16 degress. Somehow managed to lose my garmin on my travels. Don't care. Hated that watch anyway. So just gonna take it easy and hopefully finish in enough time to get back to hotel and off to catch my plane This afternoon! Been poorly all week and still got this wretched headache.
O4S - can't imagine you knitting!! Good luck tomorrow. Hurricane up there isn't there?!
chick - glad you're feeling better. hope your run is ok.
barry - yes wetsuit is easier but feels odd to start with. As does remembering to look forward and spot where you're swimming rather than to the side!
good news - feeling better today. Haven't run since Tuesday though. Setting off at 5am tomorrow. The marathon starts at 8am French time. Think there's tracking on the French Riviera website. My number is 1915. The tracking should be 10k, 21.1k, 30k and finish. If anyone does track feel free to post on here for me as I'm flying straight back Sunday afternoon and might not get on to post. My plan is to set off a lot slower than Abingdon and enjoy it. 2 marathons in 3 weeks was always gonna be an ask!!
