Yesterday I applied to do another marathon 🙂 Thought I would have learnt something but nooo 😀 So I applied to run London next year again. Actually I have the post marathon blues at the moment, it’s scientifically proven that many marathon runners get a bit depressed just after a marathon and need a new goal. So spoke to some runners on Monday advising me to book another marathon to look forward too and all week I have been thinking of when and which one apart from the already applied to London marathon.
So which one this year??? It’s too late to apply for a marathon that is before I go to India in July/August so it will have to be a marathon that’s in September or October. Dublin Marathon on the 25th October would be nice, Amsterdam on the 17th of October is another hot contender, or maybe Mallorca on 17th October, Loch Ness marathon 3rd October might be nice too or Athens marathon 31st October. Casablanca is on the 24th of October too, should be fairly warm there, tempting very tempting.
Obviously New York marathon is in November but as I want to do all 5 world majors marathon this one can wait until I start on the majors serie.
Do you know anything about the mentioned marathons? Any favourites with flat and fast PB courses or maybe you know which one to avoid, or maybe a suggestion for a different marathon? All advise and tips are good ones.
My dream marathon time now is 3.30 and if I could do 4.27 with an injury and rubbish training then 3.30 with proper training should be possible 😀 Me aiming too high…never 😉 But this is not for the autumn marathon but for 2011 instead.
