Happy Easter!

Hope the Easter bunny was good to you, but not too good! My plan is to save the majority of my choccie until after the marathon if I can restrain myself for that long! However, I still managed to eat more than is good for me!
After a lovely but brief visit from my daughters and an interesting visit with one of them to the National Portrait Gallery somehow this resulted in two rest days from running in a row - not good! Today I therefore went for a very gentle 16km run and every step hurt. It was ridiculous. After a two day break I was jumping out of my skin and yet when I ran it was really uncomfortable. I was so slow and if I run like that next weekend I'll be in big trouble!
Distance: 16km
Time taken: 1:39
Average pace per km: 6:13
Total distance for second taper week: 52km


  1. Those rest days can be unforgiving, but did you rest. Just a few more sleeps, and then let go. You will fly. Good luck.

  2. Do what Two Fruits said. I've got no idea how to peak for marathons!
