Disaster! If ever there was an urge just to give it all up then this was it. Did the first half in 1.29 and felt good however the heat and the hills caught up with me and I suffered severe cramping from the neck to the soles of my feet for the last 8 miles! Mile 25 I was ready to throw the towel in as I could not even walk let alone run! The masseur reckoned I had drank too much and therefore all the salt in my body left with the sweat. No excuses this was s__t and to top it all the toes on my right foot are covered in blisters. I am definitely guilty of going of too fast but if you dont try you dont get. I am fed up with running now so I am not sure whats next a few weeks off to start with then I will review what I want to do. Sub 3 hour is a distant dream at this moment in time (way out of my league on this performance) I think I have said it all.
