Day 19 - Windermere

And the day dawned misty, raining, not raining, sunny, raining etc
As good a day as any to run a marathon!

10th Windermere today and completed in 4.38 which keeps all 10 under 5 hours. I'm over the  moon with that and wouldn't have backed myself to do this.

Although a fast time it didn't  feel like it. I bought my time in the first half, then eased off, walking most of the hills in the second half.

Physically I'm gradually getting a few more niggles whilst on the upside my ankle isn't getting any worse. I didn't have enough hands to ice everything and eat my food after the run today!

But the main problem over the last couple of days has been overwhelming tiredness. I'm putting everything both physically and mentally into keeping this going and it's caught up with me. I need so much time to get my body right, my kit sorted, food eaten etc that there doesn't seem to be enough.

So short blog today as I still have much to do before tackling Langdale again tomorrow. And it's going to be a busy weekend with the real Langdale marathon on Saturday and a few people coming up on Sunday - hope you understand guys that I will want to be off the course and into recovery asap so won't be hanging around.

Here's a finishing photo from yesterday - thanks Christopher.
