Happy days :)
Having not made the cut for this year’s Virgin London Marathon I decided that rather than miss out on all the fun I’d run my own marathon a few weeks before the VLM.
I should have double–checked the exact marathon distance before I left this morning as I ended up running 26.4 miles instead of 26.2 :|
Physically, that’s probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done. The last four miles, even though I was so close to home were very hard work.
Anyway, I was aiming for any time under four hours.
26.40 mile run, 3h 47′36″, 8′37″ avg pace, 3321 kcal, ahr 153 bpm, mhr 181 bpm.
Nimbus 11 mileage: 263.49
Half–marathon time was 1h 52′57″, an average 8′29″ min/mile pace.
Now it’s time to replace some of those lost 3,321 calories. There’s calories in beer, right? ;)
