Today I did my first marathon.

Congratulations on completing the Therme Manchester Marathon in 05:25:33.

I am very happy with that.

Epic congratulations, Kov! That’s a huge achievement, and in fancy dress, too! Were you actually carrying the mallet with you?

Excellent job. I forgive you for disrupting my working day. In fact, I thank you for allowing me to ditch two jobs that I didn't particularly want to do.

That's awesome, Kov. I don't think marathons are for me, running a half takes it out of me for a while I think a marathon would destroy me.

Despite the best efforts of MerseyRail to ruin it by cancelling the train in the morning, I managed a 1-44 half marathon around Liverpool. I was aiming for 1-45 then I decided to try to go faster but my legs were not having it.

I saw some people I knew but manage to miss Gaz and Jem. Sorry Gaz and Jem.

Rest for a couple of weeks now.

We left earlier than originally planned anyway - having had virtually sod all sleep in the hotel the night before I was knackered, and Gaz had to relieve my sister of dogsitting duties. I waved to Wendy though! :)

I don't actually know what my time was, strava is giving me two different times and my chip time will be massively influenced by the fact we stood for 20 minutes waiting for the loo :DD ended up supporting a friend rather than going balls out anyway, so basically treating it as a long training run. Don't think I'm due to support anyone at Ironbridge in a fortnight so might push myself around that horrible course.

1:44 seems very fast! Well done.

My walking plans were ruined this weekend (the swimming plans were long gone, as the recent rain had caused the river to be far too dangerous).

On Saturday, ,my ankle wasn't feeling that great, so I checked the forecast for Sunday and saw that it wasn't too bad. So I planned to go then.

When I woke up on Sunday, it was torrential rain, which was forecast all day. When it got to midday it did look better, but the forecast was for more of the same (and looking up at the moors when I went to the shops, they were all in clouds)

So no walking for me (I don't think I will make my monthly target - need to hit 40k by Sunday!) and it's left me a bit down (especially as the clocks go back on Saturday night :(
