I learnt I'm not as fit as I was in Chester 6 months ago, my park runs are 2 mins slower and my marathon was 16 mins slower than my PB in Chester. It was hot in Chester too (towards the end) but it didn't impact my result as much as Paris. So my outcome of 3:56 was consistent with my training runs this time and I can't really blame setting off too fast, junk food and standing around in Disneyland Paris. So I just need now to learn why my performance has deteriorated when my training is just as much And hope to regain the fitness I've lost.
