Being persuaded by club colleagues to enter the South Downs Marathon on 8/6...can't quite make up my mind. Hopefulliy I will be fit enough and nearly got agreement from Mrs AF. Wasn't going to do it as it was going to be a child free weekend now her ex is going away so have step children at home- big incentive to do run then!! Problem is we are going out for dinner in the evening to some friends & I will have to stay awake and volunteer to drive (if I can move!!). Any advice?
Jude I was racing.Flat course,but,rubbish time of 47.16.Went with far too quickly with first mile in 6.53.Prefer 1/2's! A bit annoyed with myself as I didn't push myself enough.Resigned to the fact that I won't go sub 45 in a 10k.
Wow Loula that is a great report.You are a star & I am very proud of you.Hadn't realised how close to tune AF household you where-about 20 miles.Have done several races around Boxhill & Leith Hill very steep!
