I'm training for the Yorkshire marathion and had my last long run yesterday - 20 miles.
The run was going well, had my watch keeping me very close to 9min/miles and feeling good. Then 14 miles I started to feel v tired and at 17 miles my legs and head went and I started to walk and run and finished that way.
Prior to that I was doing ok and had done 18 and 20 mile runs relatively comfortably.
In the week before the run I'd missed 3 training runs and had 3 really late nights due to work pressures. It was also a pretty hot day on the run.
My confidence has taken a bit of a knock and I'm not sure whether to lower my expectations for the marathon and aim for a lower pace or put it down to a blip due to external issues and just make sure it doesnt happen again.
Does anyone have any advice or experience of a similar situation?
