Paris Marathon 2014

Posted: Yesterday at 19:48

Cardiff is my local HM as well, I've done it 3 times.  All depends on whether or not I do the Chester Marathon this year as they are on the same day.

Loving the race reports, guys.

Rachel, Paris is fab - I've done it 3 times and won't be back next year as I have other plans, but it's a great race.

I firmly believe I have a sub 4 in me, notwithstanding the amateur dramatics of last weekend.

KS - your HM pb is exactly the same as mine - funny that, eh?  Any chance you could send me over a copy of the Asics plan, I'd be interested to compare it to P&D?

Stuch - come on.  You know you want to....

Very well done all of you today

Oh hell Wenty I'm sorry to hear that.  I was tripped at mile 19 last week in Paris and limped home in 4:21 instead of the sub 4 I was comfortably on target for up to that point.

Like you I felt it had been a wasted winter.  A week on, having recovered a bit I have recognised that 5 months of hard work is never wasted and I've managed to get myself a place in another marathon on 31st May to have another shot at it.

Give yourself some proper recovery time, regroup and have a think about how you can best use the hard work you've put in.  This was beyond your control - yes, it's a pisser but it's no reflection on your ability to get the job done.

KS - I supported last year and I was surprised at how emotional it is...
