Wow, Malcs I'm amazed by your running, but also how much energy you put into the forum! I've mainly been following Isabel and James's forums as my Paris plans were more aligned with theirs, but have found all the threads inspirational and loved reading your marathon day report. Strangely I didn't feel the need to recover after the marathon ( maybe didn't push myself hard enough), and did a fast time ( for me) at the local park run.... Am in Guernsey now for their Easter running festival, sounds a great event, and I'm looking forward to running each day over the weekend, should be good training for next months Brathay ( Windermere) marathon, and also will make me feel less guilty about the Easter eggs I'm dreaming of eating
Congrats to all who did the marathons yesterday, I gave up on my "target" of sub 4, a few months ago as I wasn't following a plan, just doing runs that I loved doing, and CTS half marathons helped build endurance, and taking inspiration from both this and Isabel's forums..finished in 4h10 feeling strong and making a PB by a few seconds
Sorry you had a bad day oradiprun, but lots of time for recovery, and will cheer you on at Abingdon!
