Dom, look forward to hearing how you go in the Vaporfly's. The articles I've read suggest they really do make a difference, but for me eating fewer biscuits and getting more runs in would probably make an even bigger difference, so I can't justify them. Hard to tell - I certainly perceived a strong energy return, but then they were brand new, so may just be that new shoe bounce. Totally agree on maximal vs minimal gain. I can give myself another, more proven 4% performance boost by being less greedy.On the double-marathon recovery theme, I’m now approaching 3 weeks back from running Tokyo and feel in no way ready to do anything long or tough!
Sounds like some of you guys are on a different level! Impressive times! My hot streak :-) was beating 4 hours for the first time with a 3hr 57 in New York in November! I am too chasing the 6 majors, so Tokyo is on my list, but just focusing on Paris and Berlin this year! Interested to hear more about Tokyo in general and how to get an entry?
I definitely will never do two marathons in 2 weeks! My body would never cope with that physically or emotionally! But good luck to all of you who are doing that!!
