The Maravan (Sunday)
Day 2 of the Vigilantes Maravan, 7 laps of Cleethorpes' Thorpe Park
Day 2 and I felt pretty good considering. Ran the first two laps strong, then switched to run/walk as I needed. Quieter on the course than day one, but lots of camaraderie and good cheer. Smiling all the way again
Somehow managed to be quicker on day 2 than day 1! Saturday night's recovery strategy of a meat feast pizza with added doner kebab meat clearly worked!! :)
Woke up on Sunday morning wondering whether the decision to refuel after Maravan Day 1 with a large meat feast pizza (including piles of extra doner kebab meat ) would prove to be inspired, or a disaster! Amazingly, my legs felt fine from the start, and I managed to be 5 seconds up on day 1 at half way, 20 seconds up at 20 miles and 28 seconds up at the finish, for my first ever negative split over a double marathon weekend! Totally chuffed to finish in 2nd place for Sunday's race too, and 2nd overall for the double, only *37 minutes* behind the winner who clocked an amazing 5:59 aggregate time for the 2 days on a twisty and at times muddy, multi-terrain course! Thanks to everyone who makes the Maravan so special, my tutus and I will definitely be back again in 2019 for 14 more laps!
