Mid-term marathon wobbles? We discussed the following scenarios...

  1. You’re injured... a) but over it now, b) and it’s still around.
  2. You’re ill... have rested a week and will be healthy in a week.
  3. Training has been well behind what you had hoped for (i.e. low miles, poor routine).
  4. You’re hating every minute of this bloody build up.
  5. You’re in full panic mode, wondering if you can still do it.
