Tokyo Marathon 09

Well, I finished. And considering I was really wondering if I should start, that has to be a good thing. I also set a new PB - 5 minutes faster than in London Marathon in 2005. But I was hoping for a lot more. I trained pretty hard for this - at least one 2 hour run per week since December, a fast 2 hour run three weeks back, and a 3 hour run. Plus all the rest of the little ones that make up the mileage. In the end it was bad luck, I got hit by a virus of some sort - glands, ears, head all hurt - and began cramping at 30km.

I'll be back next year...
