during the taper my quads & left calf were sore. I found all the taper runs uncomfortable. Training had I thought gone really well. I did manage to pick up a blister on each big toe about a week before on a run (plasters slipped causing envitable friction.
from mile 1 of the marathon it was painful. I struggled from the beginning til the end. ran 30 mins slower than I'd trained for & really dug deep To finish under 5 hours
the days after the marathon I could barely walk.
Anyway I am still experiencing same problem. Tried 3 mile veryyyy slow run on Saturday & it was awful. In fact going down A steep hill today was uncomfortable on the quads especially
i marshalled very early on & although I sort of know MK found it difficult to find my way around to follow & support my friend. Must of been some lonely bits ... I thought you were all awesome.
I have one complaint - at mile 15 runners were squeezing past people out for a walk. Letting kids bounce balls in front of runners. One guy nearly fell over a kid on a scooter. Etc etc Then to top it all 3 sweaty guys had obviously been out running & walked astride the redway blocking the way for the runners behind. Total idiots !!
