Sunday was a lovely sunny day and I enjoyed my 19 mile run. The run itself was pretty comfortable as I haven previously said I have settled on a walk/ run strategy and this has made the runs a lot easier.
So far I am suffering with nothing more than a few small aches, so all good. I guess the fact I feel good afterwards shows I am probably taking the long runs a bit too gently.
I am now starting to think about the actual day of the Marathon as it is starting to feel quite close. Although I have run half marathons with no walk breaks I think I have decided to do the Marathon as walk/run from the start with the hope that at 20 miles I will still be feeling good and then can play it be ear from there.
This week is a step back week with a 12 miler at the weekend, then easter weekend is the big 20 miles.
