What to say? I ran 26 miles and some. It was hard. I felt good at 10km so ran a little too hard and hit 1/2 way 4 minutes up on schedule. Did that cost me the 14 minutes I was over my 3:30 target? I still got a PB even though I had a nice positive split (again) One day I may get it right! Oh yes, My calf cramps started really early, before the 1/2 way, but I did my best to ignore them and with a little help from another runner who encouraged me to run with him, managed to avoid walking except the aid stations.
