Whether or not to do Edinburgh sounds like a tricky decision to me. I can see the temptation to go out and eliminate any memory of London (it's what I always want to do after a bad race!), and you're definitely in 3.15 shape, but beware of doing too much too soon - not worth an injury. Alsoonly do it if you really want to, not because you feel you should produce a pb out of this campaign (you've had several already, just not at the marathon!)
All my post marathon aches have now gone and am impatient to get running again! Thrilled with my time but was really struggling last night not to go out for a gentle run, I was so bored sat at home! Went for a walk in the end to stop myself going crazy, realised I haven't gone more than a day without running since December which is probably why I'm so stir crazy now! Will hold myself back until tomorrow. Anyone else feel the same?
How did everyone else on the new Fast GFA start find it? I haven't done London before but must admit I thought it was awesome. 40 seconds to cross the start line and an accidental sub-7 minute first mile (oops...). No congestion at all.
