marathon [TDC536]

Decided yesterday to have a longer ‘blast’, as last weekday to do so until Xmas. So this morning an off-the-cuff marathon. Glad to have the company of Alessio for the last 16 miles.

Nice and evenly paced throughout [brief toilet stop at 11 miles]. Legs a bit tired the last 4-5 miles but I discovered what I thought was having to work harder to keep the same pace was actually increasing pace slightly over the last 3-4 miles.

All good then; a training marathon run at a comfortable pace, 3 days after a faster half marathon run and during a 100 mile week, in just under 3 hours 29 minutes.

Just a little leg stretch jog to Run England session and back in the evening for a 30 mile day.

Paula Radcliffe in the news today; denying any wrongdoing. At least the spotlight is on cheating in sport, so hopefully the powers that be can get something sorted, whatever the truth of the matter?
