Expected my first marathon after joining the sub 3 club to be a relaxed, super confident experience but as it is 7 days since getting the sub 3 I am nursing a few niggles especially a sore foot, and having a bit of a crisis of confidence. Was so pleased with a sub 2:55 last week but now thinking maybe 2:59 would have been better with a shot at the same tomorrow.
Really have not got a clue what pace to set off at tomorrow. In the last 15 weeks 10 have been over 80 miles, most with at least 17 miles on the sunday plenty of 20+ miles and most of those av pace 7:15 mm or under. Hopefully that's put a good base for getting round tomorrow in a decent time and without the niggles turning into injuries.
Just done the expo, was looking forward to it but it was just a pain very busy, hot with not a lot of any interest (even to someone who normally can not get enough of running, watching running, talking running and looking at running thing) maybe its just my frame of mind today- wish they would post the numbers.
LS21 that's terrible any chance of catching them (witnesses, cctv...) extra good luck tomorrow.
Off to try and work out a plan for tomorrow, while sat in my London hotel watching snooker from the Crucible which I passed this morning on my way to get my number and 8 hours later I have It!
