Yes Phil you have plenty to keep you busy on there mate. I just did the Boston London double and it was tough. 6 days apart doing two marathons at hell for leather is not possible (for me anyway). I managed a 3.05 yesterday after the 2.58 last Monday. It was a brave run, out in 1.31 back in 1.34, fatigue got the better of me. I struggled a bit mentally but no regrets as the atmosphere was superb. Went on the beers and was still having a few drinks later on with Jellybum.
If you do Paris on 3rd April you will have two weeks to recover which is just about manageable but perhaps still tough. I'm doing Paris and London so I'll have a 3 week gap.
Having a rest now, but want to say thanks for the great support yesterday from my friends on here (Jellybum, Nells, Running Rodent, Scott The Walker, Yermaj, Stuchbury, UsigeJo, keyzeSuze, Helterskelter and of course the legend Radar Sal who jumped on course and ran along with me and then smacked my arse) and great running from the likes of Orapid, Pottermoss, LloydR, Heroine and my other running pals and club mates. Was just a great day.
