My legs are really hurting still  I thought I was trained well for the marathon so hope it is old age

Where do we book the tour bus? On the website? And is that the one that follows the route. I want to do it with my husband.

Duda - thanks. Just been googling. is there a particular product you use. And what ratio or how much do I need

Buttercup - well done on your ultra. You'll be fine on a long distance run with all the carbs unless of course you're gluten intolerant/allergic but sounds like you had a good day. Apart from going in the wrong direction!!!

Red eye - well done. Sounds like you and gf have really taken this way of eating on board.

lee - well done. Keep it up. And probably stay clear of pirates. Bad influence

So just completed my mara yesterday. Happy with the result although would have liked 2 mins quicker had tailwind in bottle and filled that up at about 17 miles. Also had jelly babies. Didn't feel as though I bonked but I did get cramp in the last 4/5 miles and had to stop numerous times. Am I still not getting enough salt or magnesium?  Do people take supplements? My legs were very heavy at the end and I slowed down quite a bit. Every time I tried to go a bit faster I got cramp. I have never suffered from this before. Also got 2 blisters which I don't normally get. Hard work for the last 10 miles. Definitely feeling the after effects now

well  Abingdon marathon done and dusted and my qualifier in the bag. 4h22. I was aiming to go under 4h20. Which would have been a pb for me since my last stand alone marathon 4 years ago but it was not to be. Training had gone well and I felt good on the day but I just couldn't hold on after about 16 miles. Then in the last 4 miles I kept having to stop for cramp which I've never suffered from before. Also 2 blisters which I also don't suffer from!!!  Anyway I'm happy with that and looking forward to a large glass of wine later????

Good to see you again Seren. Well done to you and your husband
