Ouch!

I forgot how much marathon training hurt – until today!

I’ve got the day off work to sort out the car and get my long run in before visiting friends for the weekend.  Managed to get out of the door just after 8am for a 9 mile out and back along the canal.  Instead of heading into Milton Keynes I went the other direction, towards Northampton.  I ended up just by Yardly Gobion and ran alongside a great bit of the Grand Union.

I started to feel it at 10 miles which started to feel tough at 13.  When I reached 15 miles all I wanted to do was stop and collapse.  I was out of fuel by now and ever step forwards was through pain until I was home and had covered the 18 miles.  I’ve not had that feeling since training last year.
