Paris Marathon 2014

Going to start back running this weekend.My original plan was to rest my knee for 3 weeks but I miss the running too much.I'll just stick to nice easy runs for a bit.

Good luck to RR in Boston,not that she really needs it,a marathon is just like a walk in the park to her,remarkable running.

Eggy: I agree about setting goal times,biggest thing is having the sense to change your goal when you know deep down that it's not going as planned for whatever reason

Pickle: I learned loads from my last training cycle.Mostly hard lessons about overtraining,not stretching enough and to start listening to my body more.From now on if I feel tired I will rest rather than sticking to my training schedule.

hatter:I felt a bit like that today,I'm just fed up lazing about but at the same time I can't be arsed doing anything.Im going to hit the gym next week while my I rest my knee.

Had a quick look at the calendar,about 8 weeks til I would have to start a16 week schedule for Loch Ness marathon,that should give me plenty of time for rest and to build a base mileage.

TD: There are a lot of similarities between your story and my race experience,apart from your finish time of course haha,hopefully one day I'll be disappointed getting a 3:25 marathon time.

Leeds Rob: my photos look a lot better than last time even tho I was struggling more this time.My wife and Jellybum said i looked as if I had just started the race when they seen me at the final mile,I sure didn't feel like It.Your story shows that there is more to a marathon than goal times,it's about enjoying the occasion aswell.

HS &TD: Good to hear about Leeds Rob,he didn't sound confident at all and was just running in hope.Just goes to show the determination that runners have.

Weedy: I'll just continue my recovery as planned and see how my training is going when I reach the Loch Ness deadline,1st of July I think.If I'm behind I'll just turn my attention to the 10k.

Who was the guy at the meet up point,I can't remember his/your name,he said he hadn't trained for a while but decided to give it a shot anyway.Just to see how he got on.

Can't stop thinking about how good Paris was.I even ran the full marathon without music,which is something I would never ever have done before.Hopefully 1 day I'll be lucky enough to sample the atmosphere of the London marathon.

24 weeks til Loch Ness,maybe I will have enough time to let my injury fully heel and squeeze In the necessary training.

Dannirr:One thing I've learned from the 2 marathons I've done and from speaking to people in pub last night , is that to hit your goal time,you really need a whole lot of things to go your way.There are so many variables like injuries and illness,training and fuelling mistakes,poor preparation and let's not forget the weather that can play a huge part in how it goes on the day.

Mike:I've just recovered from It band issues.My physio put it down to weak hips and glutes.If you don't have any planned races,I would just rest and do the following routine a few times a week,it defo helped me.Since I was training for Paris I took the advice of the experienced runners on here and continued to do cycling for CV,not ideal but defo helped me get round Paris.

Had a great day yesterday.It was great meet some of you guys.I actually enjoyed yesterday's marathon a lot more than my 1st even tho I was undertrained and carrying a niggle(4:44).One of these times everything is going to fall into place and I'll get the time I first set out to get(3:30).Going by some of my training over the past 2 marathons I defo have it in me,just need to stop making silly mistakes.

Was planning on doing Loch Ness but I just don't have enough time,time to rest my knee for a few weeks and then target another marathon next year.
