I am still riding high on the crest of this awesome marathon wave, if you could bottle and sell the runners high, you could make a fortune! I’m pretty sure that the return to work tomorrow will well and truly bring me back down to earth with a bump, so I’m going to eat and drink lots today as my last day of post-marathon rest, then get up early tomorrow for a small, easy jog and get right back on it!
My first marathon – What I learned and a few special thank yous!
I am writing this nursing three very sore and bruised toes and a massive sense of pride. I did it! Yesterday I completed my very first marathon, and it was one of the best days of my life!
This is the first time I have followed a specific training plan to get ready for a race and I have been sticking to it religiously for 16 weeks now. As with all good training plans, the last couple of weeks are taper weeks down to the big day.
