Thanks for the good wishes.Fingers crossed.
Barry-I think Abo will be the turning point for you-sub 3.15 next!-an excellent time despite the effect of the achilles injury and no calf niggles.Am I correct that you have a London place? Whats your thinking for that one? A mix of cycling swimming and runs looks good or are you doing the Furman method like Nell.Interestingly London doesnt fit into that list...Its not really one to PB at .
Re the achilles-Im convinced mine was caused by tight glutes,calf and hamstring and the achilles being weaker than the rest became the fall guy. Massage seems to have done the trick for me.
Looking at my 9 marathons my first was in 2006 ,London 3.26 and my best was Liverpool 2012, 3.09 so the gap for me is17mins.Im not sure I will get another PB and my goals for London next year are 1. starting the race 2. Finishing 3.GFA-3.19.59. so I can do it again.
AA-when I read your post I was worried you were going to show us a pic of those blisters.You should be fully recovered for the next marathon ....not sure I would be mentally up to 2 so soon
Nell-I know you did a variation of Furman for York....what shedule did you use for your Spring Marathon-any chance you could share it with us/me.Thanks
Did a cheeky 10k on the TM earlier-felt fine apart from the trapped nerve in my neck caused by the whiplash effect when my head hit the wooden floor.
