Right. It's official. The Outlaw marathon route is the TOUGHEST marathon in Britain. Yeah, yeah, so it's flat and scenic with aid stations every mile and thousands of cheering spectators. But there must be some sort of random energy sucking, morale draining force field all around it!

I have run about 15 marathons. My marathon experiences go like this.

WORST EVER: Last Years's Outlaw Marathon - over 6 hours
SECOND WORST EVER - Outlaw marathon 2010 - 5:30ish
THIRD WORST EVER - This year's Outlaw Marathon - 5:45

As my PB is 4:22 and I ran a 2:08 half marathon a couple of months ago, these performances are ridiculously, ludicrously rubbish.

Poet worked out years ago that the Outlaw run was a killer. I think his phrase was 'it should be fast but it just bl00dy isn't!" I foolishly kept the faith with the race. But never again! (Or not till next year anyway).

"It always seems impossible, until it's done" (Nelson Mandela)

I disagree....a 5.45 marathon off the amount of training you've been able to do...feeling tired and out of sorts..... is very good indeed. I'd be over the moon with that result. Take heart from it and bash on...the best is yet to come Very Happy
