Mind Marathon

stats of the week: run 66km, cycled 160km, gym 2h
Ruhr Marathon result: 3:55:44

You could rate this as a failure and you'd probably be right. Today's marathon was intended to become a build-up run to put miles into the box for the Comrades challenge.

The marathon ended up as another race and the burden I feel now is even higher than last time. There is no part all along my legs that doesn't hurt.

The pace seemed to be easy and once I noticed that I was too fast I wasn't able to slowdown. However, I could keep the speed until to the end but it was a matter of mind.
