50 Marathons in 50 Days
17 July – 4 September
Just a jog to Tower Bridge and back. Third 10+ mile run in 8 days and I am feeling it! At least I am back to it. Only 2 days with walks this week, even though the mileage is very low it is a start.
Just a jog to parkrun duties this morning.
Just a couple of very early morning miles.
We managed it! We ran around all the twenty TUSK rhinos in London; 12 miles of pain, boy am I unfit. Pretty dark by the time we finished, but we collected them all.
From time to time, though all is in place [plans, goals, training knowledge, availability, ability, desire] and there is no over-training effect in operation, you seem to somehow run out of steam, to become becalmed, bereft of forward motion.
It then appears almost impossible to get any momentum going again. A tough 14 mile run this morning, not cool and not flat but shouldn’t have felt this hard. Fitness drops fast if you take a break. Hopefully I can still look back on this as a low point. Two years ago today I finished the 50 marathons; been barely treading water since.
To shop and back just to at least start this new challenge. A slow build up to a return to MMM2018, running the dates in November. I will have to work exceptionally hard now to get 2,000 miles for this year. Didn’t even realise it had hit September today.
