congrats Iccle Jim thats a great time..just goes to show that allthe hard work has payed off..
0 miles for me..post marathon...no reason just lazy! ....anyway moving on,,,,despite never doing another marathon did find myself on the ballot page this morning for London, unfortunately /fortunately depending how you look at it..it was closed by 11ish.
Denise...how are you feeling...have you done much running post london..am i right that edinburgh is end of May? doesnt sound impossible to me..if you are motivated for it!
Anniesophie, I felt the worst post marathon on Wednesday this week, I gave into, left work at lunch time and went too bed. (I couldn't sleep but rested). The next morning I was a different person. So my answer to your question is yes it is normal, and I think it hits everyone at different times.
I think a tip for future marathon runners at VLM would be as you go through birdcage walk onto The Mall is to follow the blue line closely. I tried to avoid the crowds and went wide to be less congested and have no photos of me finishing or coming down the mall... very disappointed as have no decent photos...
