So I run the London Marathon 2 weeks ago and did well, beyond expectations (3.25). I always thought that the best strategy is to set a new target so to avoid the "marathon blues". So, I set the target to improve my 10K time and signed up for my first 10K of the season, next weekend.
Today I went out to do some speedwork 4 X 1500m in 10K time. I could only manage 1 rep, I felt sooo sick and out of breath. The disturbing thing is that I did this session before many times and it was nothing my body wasn't prepared for. Yet, after the first 1500m, I had to stop and sit down on a bench, where I stayed for 15 minutes before I headed home.
I think that I am scared that getting this unbeliavable marathon time and achieving a PB in my 10K time last year after some hard speed training, I am just not able to improve any more. I know that the obvious answer is to join a running club, and I would love to, but the one nearest to me (Serpentine London) clashes with my work shifts.
OK, I just wanted to share, I feel very disappointed.
