Well done everyone that finished yesterday!! I had a great race with a new PB 4:09, beating my last marathon by 35 mins, so yes i am very pleased with my efforts!! Had to walk a little bit at 20 and 24, but all in a good run for me!
The atmosphere on the course was great with the crowd cheering you all the way!! The only thing that let the race down a little for me was the water they was giving out. The amount of people that i see choking on it or they would just explode in your hands. But apart from that a great and well run race!!
PS - thanks to tall the Pirates that I see on the course that gave me a cheer!!
I sitting in the office going through everything i need to pack this evening ready for the weekend!! Not sure my boss and colleagues are happy about my lack of work, but hey ho, i need to get my priorities right?! ha
My taper is not good this time at all as i keep feeling niggle and twinges all over the place. The amount of people that were coughing and sneezing on the the train today had me really worried, i just wanted to get out of that infection zone!! ha.
Race day is is all but upon us now, good luck everyone. If you spot me in my East Essex Tri Club vest just give me a pat on the back as you go by!!
I was slightly concerned earlier in the week as so many people I know have been ill and I have been feeling under the weather also. I feel slightly better now however commuting by train/tube into London isn't exactly helping my anxiety about not getting ill!
I share your pain!! I try and hide in the corner on the C2C so no one can breath on me!! ha.
I see that we are forecast rain for Sunday, just our luck when its been nice all week! Cant Michael Fish be wrong about this one too??
