Seven Marathons – Day ONE.
Great start but probably too fast; only tomorrow/rest of week will tell. Overcast and a little chilly but no rain and light wind, so perfect for running. Sun came out about half way around.
Slightly up and downy in places [apparently 670ft!] but laps on solid paths so no muddy running. Only got to start with 5 Minutes to spare as couldn’t find the cafe for registration after a 2.5 mile walk from the station [and jog at end] meaning with back to the station walk after I covered 31 miles for the day.
Marathon in 3:45:40 which felt easy for the first half then I had to push just a little to keep the pace going, but very happy to only lose 40 seconds on the second half, so good pacing.
Even though 50 runners, on a 4 mile lap it feels like you are running completely alone most of the time.
Now for some rest. Till early AM travel to Milton Keynes again.
