A lovely recovery week last week.  Much needed.  

Back on it again now and the weather is forecasted to take a turn for the better.  Yay.

Choosing my first Marathon

I don't understand why people don't like hills.  An undulating marathon is definitely less painful than a flat marathon.

Exactly what Screamy said.  You will not gain anything other than fatigue at this stage.

Yup Melds.  On my course certainly.  But running was such a small part of the overall syllabus, ie it didn't really feature.  But when it did occur in warm ups and such like, we were encouraged to promote heel striking with a smooth transition to forefoot .  No explanation given other than that's what we do when I asked. I wanted to pass the course so I didn't argue.

Funnily enough, my PT doesn't ever comment on my running 'style'
