Post Marathon Thoughts

So I ran the marathon and it was amazing.

In this vlog I share with you all my thoughts on running a marathon without too much training.

I was going to train for 18-weeks but due to injuries I only managed to train for 8 weeks and prior to the actual race I did not train for whole 6 weeks, so one could say I actually run it without preparation.

Goku Vlog #4 – Marathon Training – Week 3

Marathon Training – Week 3

The Marathon Training has to be put on hold, because I’ve encountered a small problem with my knee…

I have to let it heal now, before I can resume the training.

I wish I had some Senzu Beans…

Instead I’m gonna fast for 3 days and use a lot of ice on my knee.

So yeah, I’m a newbie when it comes to long distance running, but if I can run a marathon, so can you, right?

First in miles:

6 Swimming 4,8 8 4,8 Rest 9,6 pace 14,4
7 Swimming 6,4 11,2 6,4 Rest 11,2 pace 22,4
8 Swimming 6,4 11,2 6,4 Rest 11,2 24
