Our very own Claire H has been at it again! Not content with one marathon, she’s went ahead and ran an ultra-marathon two weeks ago and then Manchester Marathon last weekend. At the end of the run I asked her how she was feeling and she couldn’t put it into words at the time (well not polite ones anyway), but after a few days, she was able to put her thoughts together and work out what she learned from a challenge like that.
I’m not sure what possessed me last autumn to sign up for Manchester Marathon. For those who know me, my signing up for a marathon was not an unusual occurrence.
However, the 2017 Manchester marathon, was on 2 April. Seven days after I was taking part in the 50K Canalathon. Yes, I would be attempting to run 26.2 miles just seven short days after I’d run 50k or approximately 31 miles. What was I thinking?
