With three days to go to my first marathon, I think the enormity of the task (the MDS) is setting in. What I experience on saturday will be one 6th of the MDS, but without the sand and without the 40+ degrees.
For my first marathon, I haven’t taken an easy choice. Not that any marathon is easy…. just, this one is especially difficult. In summary:
- 26.2 miles
- 1338 m of elevation gain
- Welsh hills
- Welsh rain
A steady jog tomorrow night to loosen up and then let the carb loading begin!
