SUNDAY 8th MAY 2011Marathon (26.2 Miles) in 5:18:41
Completed my first marathon today, another goal checked off the list! Quite hot, not really good running conditions and my time was not as targeted neither. My end time was 5:18:41. First few miles were too quick, around 8 minute miles, and was at around 2 hours at the half way point.
At around the 15 mile point, fatigue got the better of me and I had to start alternating between walking and running. I did at least find some extra energy at the end though and had a sprint finish. So all in all, did not hit the intended time but the goal was to complete a marathon and I did. After all, a marathons a marathon!
2 goals in 2 days! Fuck yeah!
Edited to add time.
