Up & Running

I felt that this would be the month that would give me a clear indication of my abilities and potential to do the MdS, as I was running in the South Downs Marathon, which, by default of location, was to be very hard work. The terrain allowed only the best runners to run the hills, which us mortals had to walk, but I got round in 4:07 and didn’t hit the wall at all. Rain hammered down in the last 5 miles (won’t have this to contend with in Morocco), but with Andy Palmer, from Poole Runners as company the miles seemed easy and I finished with ease. I hit the wall the following day as I felt like I had flu that night, but recovered quickly with little discomfort, and returned to cross-training within a week.
