Marathon thoughts

Yes, you know, I ran a marathon. You followed my training. I've told you all about my race (here, here and here). But, what did I think about this whole experience?


Running for time or for distance

Some runners go for a run set on time. One hour to run. Easier to plan in a busy life. Others go for a run set on distance. A 10K loop. I think the choice is made upon personal liking and convenience. Thinking further, both approaches have their advantages and help your training in a different way.
