Lots of miserable types apparently about! On my usual 6am run round the local park there are a number of people I see almost every time. Always a cheery 'morning' from all of them every time. It's just a really nice community feeling. In Peterborough of all places!
Well, how did we all do then? I'll go first....
5:05:00. Legs went at about mile 17 then reverted to run/walk for the remainder. Then horrible cramp at about mile 22! Still, pleased I carried on the run/walk until the end.
Will I ever do another? Not for a while! Will keep trying to get a ballot entry into london but for now happy to keep on the halfs....the training is just too much for the time being!
Massive respect to everyone that ran. After reading on here about marathons for the past 2 years I now have a new perspective on the whole thing.
18 miles done on Saterday. Felt like I couldn't go much further but I'll put that down to lack of fluids and the fact it was my longest week ever running (42 miles monday to sat). Hopefully, with fresh legs, lack of hills and being in Berlin(!) the last 8 miles will be possible. I certainly think with rested legs there will be anotherfew miles in it. The rest will be through gritted teeth!
Off to research tapering now....starting to get nervous!
Blockbuster, that sounds good to a first time marathon runner like myself!
Finally got to go out running again today after a week off...8 miles flew past (as it should by now with a week off) barely felt it. Still want to do a 19+ miler before the big event though, just for the confidence boost.
Not good, but my training is put on hold for a week due to the missus going on hols and me being left looking after my boy! Fustrating isn't the word.....still, I'm going to take the break to re-charge a bit then go for a 19mil+ run on sunday as a confidence booster. Hope you're all well!
