Six days after the Canberra marathon I ran 40 minutes fairly well with Tamami San. I didn’t feel that crash hot at the start and felt worse when two young guys started running behind us. Thankfully they stopped after about five Km and I could limp away.
I am taking things very easily and not doing much running. I think I am recovering but I want to give it a bit longer just to be sure before I start running again.
I think the Marathon can fool you to some extent. You think you are right to go but really the effort made is till effecting your body even if you don’t realize it.
Regardless of whether I am ok to go I think I will just rest for a while yet.
