i thought I was in good shape for VLM but after 13.1 in my goal 1:28 it all went wrong stomach cramp, itb pain, general lack of energy and I had a really hard last half in 1:52- very disappointed
To me, these don't seem to be issues to do with your training. Perhaps look at nutrition and physio work.
By the way - I suffered a similar crash during Brighton marathon, but I put this down to inadequate training due to injury. My plan to avoid that next time is to sort on my technique and form and also try to get in a nice base mileage towards the end of the year.
