After the marathon...what then?

Post  JSIMMONDS on Tue Jan 20, 2009 4:38 am

Anyone given any thought as to what to do when it's all over? It's been so all-consuming for me that I can't imagine getting up without thinking through the training plan, worrying about the latest niggle etc etc.

I'm thinking about triathlon (it is the modern day mid life crisis after all and a damn sight cheaper than a sports car).
Then again, I might try and get in through the ballot for next year as well. All depends upon how it goes this time round!

Ha ,
You must not have looked at the price of a good Tri bike! you can pay £4/5/6 k but worth every penny of any mid-life crisis, and cheaper than a divorce. I managed three 'sprint' tri's last year, sprint are the easy ones....um! 400m in the pool, 20ishkm bike then a nice little jog. it is a great sport and it can be completed without being great at all three disciplines(or in my case any) it really is for one and all, young ,old , fat , thin, slow,fast doesn't matter..... you race against the clock not the ones in front. I like it because as you get older you have more chance of winning (less people) in fact I was fifth in one race, yes fifth! Do you know not one person asked me how many people competed in that race, good job, there was only five in our age group, but it sounded impressive. Well must run. geek

Bl@@dy hell Jon!

Not really been thinking much beyond April just yet, however...

I do want to run a Marathon elsewhere. Kay, my long suffering wife, agrees - she would like me to run in Prague, New York, Paris, anywhere with shops really! The three I really fancy are: Midnight Sun in Norway, the Reykjavik Marathon and the Comrades Run in South Africa.

I'm worried because we are meant to be playing Chelsea on Saturday and I'm worried they will move it to the Sunday - if it is the 1:30 kick off I will run the marathon in a orld record time!
