Sunday evening was spent checking all club members finished the marathon safely, pleased to say that all completed and are in one piece and everyone did fantastically well. The Monday fallout after a televised marathon or Great north run is that everyone seems to think that they can run a marathon. Watching a race for a few hours is mainly all they see, what they don't see is those hours and hours of distance runs, mostly alone in crappy weather weeks and weeks ahead of the race. Long distance training can be very time consuming and fitting it around family and work time is probably as tough as running the race itself. Congratulations again to all that completed and even more for them weeks of training, you deserve a day or twos rest this week!
