Fantastic. wink.gif You did better than that bloke at the Commonwealth Games who fell at the end.

How about an ultra marathon?

100 miles across a desert, or something stupid like that. biggrin.gif


thumbsup.gif Cheers I was happy it was over

Going to find something completely different I think. I'll continue to run a bit but I have had enough of this endurance stuff.

Maybe Kendo or something more physical

Tough Mudder?

Or you could take inspiration from your best mate(s) the Surgeon, and climb mountains. He did one every week. wink.gif

Tick and Tick thumbsup.gif

Had to get someone to fix my legs at 27k as I got cramp in both. Needed to fast walk for an hour to loosen them but managed to run the last 6 to get in under 5 hours which I am happy with.

5k to a marathon in a year... need to find a new challenge

that's awesome nm! clapping.gif

i've ran for almost 8 years now and i still haven't attempted a marathon. the main reason is because i wanna finish with decent time, like 4.5 hours or under. what was your time at the end? the fact that you finished within 5 hours is pretty damn amazing, considering that you didn't run the whole thing. i know some ppl who ran the whole thing for more than 5.

regarding you finding a new challenge, why don't you continue running, just longer distances?

Cheers,

4:30 would have been great and I understand wanting to train for that. It is tough though so I would recommend not trying to aim for a time as you will need the mental strength to get through it without thinking about trying to do it fast.

The thing with longer distances is that I did not find 5 hours of running fun. Halves are a good amount of running time but longer is very tough

that's why i haven't really went for it. one of these days i'll definitely do it. i agree, half marathons are a good distance. btw, some people transition from marathons to trail running and doing longer distances there? have you considered that? trail running is not all about running nonstop, it's a lot of stop and go. i've tried a bit but not in a race, cuz i've only trained with some friends who were going for a 60k race.
