Sunday 5th May has been a date in many people’s diaries for a long time now. With approximately 5,000 entries, this year’s Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon was another amazing day for everyone!
The brand new route, covered all four corners of the city, with options for runners to take part in the 26.2 mile marathon individually or as a team relay, a 9 mile walk and a 2.5 mile Fun Run - so there was something to suit all abilities. The marathon started at Stormont, worked it’s way through North, East, South and West of Belfast, and finish at Ormeau Park. Organisers promised a flatter and faster route, to help with some PBs this year.
So, how’s your training been going? What’s your recovery and self care routines? Did you make the most of the all important taper? As you know, the tapering phase is a critical part of your marathon training. During these last couple of weeks, you should have cut back your mileage to give your body and mind a chance to rest, recover, and prepare for your marathon.
