[TDC 899]

So recovery week one starts properly today. Catch up with work time pressures mean a meagre 1 mile again today; just to say I did something. Seems very cruel to not be able to run. Still, better to go easy for a week to iron out any tiredness kinks; easy for them to get disguised when you have to run everyday.

Guess I have to find time to sort out and spruce up the blog for the Autumn. Archiving challenges and setting new ones for the rest of the year. But first a small starter debrief of the 50/50.

What went well
50 marathons completed
Average time of under 4 hours each
Ran with lots of interesting people
Encouraged some runners to get started again
No niggles or injuries
Discovered this was well within my capabilities
Zero ice baths, massages, on the run nutrition
A sub 3:25 marathon on Day 37
[the track marathon was actually 2 laps long]

What didn’t go so well
Rubbish charity fundraising amount
Didn’t capture the public imagination enough
Didn’t complete every marathon sub 4 hours
Some daily nutrition difficulties
Confirmed I am not a warm weather runner
Got a black toenail
