Not quite a success story here. I am officially broken and in hindsight should of pulled out at mile 3 when the excruciating pain kicked in! I knew going in that it would 50/ 50 chance and sadly it went wrong. The pain carried on and the most I could run at one time was 50 paces followed by long walk breaks. So glad to see the finish. Very disappointed as last few training runs had been quite positive, but I think falling down steps last week did more damage than I thought. 4:49. And my last marathon ever.
mmmm...... I stopped using a HRM ages ago for that Reason too - TBH I was scaring the kids with my screams everytime I had a shower! May look on Saturday too But not sure if it will be worth it with my limited future training.
