Virgin London Marathon - 21st April 2013

After a chilly wet Winter the glorious running conditions on Sunday were a welcome change.  The marathon was, for me, a goal to to help me train through the Winter.  Up to the last 2 weeks I had a pretty ideal build up.  My pace came back (slowly) my body held up to the extra miles and the company of fellow WADAC runners on the long training runs was a great diversion.  The last 2 weeks saw me lose my voice, develop a sore throat and generally feel rubbish.  However after the tragic events at the finish of the Boston Marathon I was determined to run the VLM come what may.

The goal was ideally to run sub 3 hours 15 mins to keep open the option of a guaranteed entry in 2014/15.  This was to be my 12th marathon, I have always been great at pacing, hydration and nutrition in my marathons usually running a pretty even pace throughout.  The 3 year gap since my last marathon must have thrown all that history out of the window.  I went off too fast, took 2 little nutrition on board and with a 6 min positive split....ooops.  I did still make my time goal, coming in 3 hours 12 mins 27 seconds.  I am a happy bunny.

For all those I coach the moto is do as I say not as I do.
