I got 3h 23m 18s. Very pleased as although it's not a PB, it's my second fastest marathon (out of 6) that I've done.
Was on course for 3h 15m up until 21 miles where I fell (no idea what I tripped over) and smacked on the ground on my left wrist, knee, shoulder, hip and arm. Cue a very loud swear word, followed by checking that there were no children (or race photographers!) around. Had blood on my arm, and down my leg (which to be fair looked much worse than it actually was). Some Marshalls called after me, but I knew that they'd probably try to make me stop (even if it was only temporary) but I just had to keep going. I knew then that a PB was gone, so just had to "get round" the final 5. But very happy with my time considering. Wrist feels stiff and sore, but not swollen. Having broken my wrist previously I'm pretty definite it's just sprained, so icing and resting.
But an amazing race. Marshalls were fantastic. Great atmosphere between the runners. My first Abingdon, but certainly not my last. Wine and a takeaway curry now I reckon!!
In my hotel, kit ready and now just trying to relax! I'm so excited now! Did a dry run to the car park at Abingdon College just now - seeing all the "Caution Runners" signs out made it all seem incredibly real!
10 miles done. Felt very good and ended up running an average pace of 10 seconds per mile above my target pace. Mind you it was 5 miles downhill, then 5 uphill so perhaps the average pace might be a bit skewed?
Either way, that's the last "proper" run done before The Big Day now! Getting very real, but very exciting too!
