Sunday Apr 7 #

running 3:30:08 [3] 42.45 km (4:57 / km) +90m 4:54 / km

Manchester marathon
3'28'52 for 42.2k; course was about 200m too long.

didn't sleep hardly at all the night before.
got eating right - 1litre of Torq go-juice; 3 Torq bars and probably about 5 Torq gels. Banana and nutrigrain in couple of hours before starting
felt rubbish at the start - first 10k were surprisingly hard, and took 49'49 on them which ought to have felt really easy.
21k to 35k felt good and was overtaking lots of people (it was downhill)
struggle on last 7k - slightly uphill and quads and hamstrings sore: decided not to push too hard and end up stopped by the side of the road like lots of other people...
