Trail running 4:58:00 [3] 26.6 mi (11:12 / mi)

Marathon Du Medoc

Fun. I overheated at half way and struggled in the 2nd half. We had planned to cruise the first half (1:54, about 5-10mins of which was stopping / drinking / taking pics) and stop more in the 2nd. Stopped for a good 20mins at 30k where there was ice cold beer and ice cream (I had 3 ice creams. They helped!). Sore head from over heating meant I didn’t drink as much as I could have. And I did something to my left shoulder which made it absolutely f’ing agony. And blisters and hip flexor cramp, as expected. Ray made sure he got value for money for both of us on the wine front.

There was a nice post race beer / wine / food / feast tent at the end, where we flopped in the sun and waited for Pete and Jen, who finished about an hour after us. Despite the pain and exhaustion this is still without a doubt the best marathon there is. Just amazing!

Trail running 32:53 [3] 4.4 mi (7:28 / mi)

Meggetlaps. 20 laps of the small loop, before boredom got me. Was hoping to go on a more interesting outing, but they decided to go to the grass and do tackling, so we had to stay in the vicinity of the pitch.
