I've written a long post on the Marathon forum, but as this forum has been, and still is my spiritual home, I thought I'd sumarise, and give you all a link to my main post which is here: healthunlocked.com/marathon...
The main points:
- I just ran 17.5k! Might even be 17.6 actually, but that's nearly 11 miles. Good grief!
- I did a very stupid thing and forgot to change the insoles over to the trail shoes, but did remember to remove the stock insoles, so I basically did 11 miles with no insoles at all. Doh! I have blisters as a reminder of my foolishness
- I also now have joggers nipple. Nice.
My question to all my friends on here is how the heck did I manage that? How did I end up training for a HM I haven't even dared to enter yet? I must be going mad!
What I will say though, is I really enjoyed it for the most part.
The reason I'm even considering a HM is mainly due to the fantastic support of all of you, my friends, on this forum. You are all amazing!
