Would you sell your medal?
Managed a few short outings over the last few weeks to try and get the legs moving again, but fair to say they still feel like lead post-VLM. Even running a couple of miles it feels like I'm starting all over again.
I'm hoping there is still fatigue in the legs and that is the reason for how crap I feel when running lately. I've read a few articles saying that you shouldn't run after a marathon for at least a month, but I'm not sure whether to take this too seriously. Think I might cross-train for a few weeks to try and keep the fitness at a decent level but allow the legs to recover.
Dismayed to see the prices for the official marathon photos as many of you have already commented. I can't really say I'm too bothered about buying them, but it's other family members that seem to want a picture of me struggling through the marathon. I'm sure I read somewhere that some of the proceeds do go to charity so maybe it not too bad after all.
I was even more dismayed the other evening to notice a few Virgin London Marathon finishers medals for sale on ebay. Why would you really want to run it and then sell your medal? I could understand people wanting to give it to a family member but to just sell it seems sooooo sad. How much would you have to be offered to part with your finishers medal?
Like many of you, I'll be waiting for the ballot results in October. I think no-one will be awaiting them more keenly than my girlfriend who I kindly entered into the ballot as a surprise! First she heard was the email notification saying 'you have been entered into the ballot for the Virgin London Marathon'. She told me she would rather have had flowers.
