"Thanks Death Punch" - not a phrase I ever expected to see written down love it.
Yes, made me laugh too after I read it back!
G-Dawg - Would be interesting to see what plan your mate's coach comes up with too
VTrunner - I had a 500ml bottle of sports drink the day before and a neara full one on the drive up to Manchester in the morning, so I think I was okay? I've had the twitches before and they have led to bad cramps in the race later and stopping to stretch didn't help ease it as the rest of the legs started ceasing too. So I knew from experience what was potentially on the cards.
Interesting pnts about he higher mileage Leslie
Good luck for London Poacher if you give it a go - you might surprise yourself! Think age can be a mental thing too as I don't feel my age (and don't act it too!).
Sounds like you had a great race plan and race too JF2.
Good report ssc and glad you got a great time too. Sounds like you mentally toughed it too.
Still a few aching leg muscles Gul, but a bit better than yesterday. Workmates are laughing at me going down the stairs to the toilet.
Been looking at an Autumn marathon (but need to discuss with Mrs KR) and Chester or Mablethorpe look like options. Anyone done Mablethorpe?
Thanks for posting that info up Badbark. I thought the pace of the longer runs would be a lot slower. Not surprising you include the weights too, like a few other have mentioned. I think this could be something I need to take up. Looks like you have found the right balance.
Good 22 miler Leslie, can;t remember the last time I had a 10+ hour sleep!
