Post-marathon debrief

I've had 3 days to think about it and have the following outcomes.

- My strategy was to go at an ambitious pace, no matter what, and if i blowup, i blowup... so i shouldn't be disappointed that i blew-up.
- I knew my prep wasn't ideal, already feeling flat at Sydney half, on the verge of injured/overtrained, and ill earlier in the week (i didn't eat at all 3 days before the race, when i would normally be carb-loading)
- I did not do enough leg-strength work over the last 3 months, which i already know is my personal weakness. This was my downfall.

I should be taking confidence in the fact that i put myself in the position to come 2nd in a marathon, rather than feeling down about not making it.

Looking forward to 6 weeks doing some real bike-training and in the pool and try and again put myself in a position for a good result at IMWS 70.3
