Mace fantastic race report you remember so much ! weldone again !
JH you also a great run
I bumped into a local ex elite runner Stuart Hall although to me he is still elite , at the airport on the way to London he was hoping for sub 2.30 @ the age of 50 ! I saw him again in the way home he ran 2.34,and was disapointed !!!!! 2.34 @ 50 !!
Thinking back to my race the odd thing was I didnt get that never again feeling and felt quite strong untill suddenly my legs went dead in the last few 100 yards I guess it was the famous wall ? I have never experienced that before a really odd feeling had it happened half a mile sooner I wouldnt have made it under 4 hours I reckon , I must sort out a better way to carry my gels !!
SM6 oh dear what have ypu done to your knee ? hope it improves soon , keep up the cross training
SC nice to see you recovering well , hoping to get to body pump myself next week
MG1 nice recovery for you also ! and wow !! respect to your brother
I forgot to mention my brother actually , he did a 20 minute PB 3.56 , he has beaten me over the last couple of half marathons and I thought he may get me over the marathon , but its odd there are a few chaps from my club that run faster halfs than me but I run better marathons , I have suggested slowing down the long runs and doing more of them
Rest here , the heel pain has come back I thought it might , so back to icing and resting it
