Yesterday I managed to complete the Baxter's Loch Ness marathon in a none too shabby time of 4.19.44, not bad considering the terrain.
The last 3 miles were hard going and I had to walk a little bit just after 25 miles.
The comedown hit me quite hard after surviving on all the sugar and caffeine from the energy gels, after crossing the line my blood pressure dropped and I felt a bit giddy, also damn near burst into tears.
When I got to sit down my hands were throbbing which is down to dehydration so although I thought I had taken enough water at the stations I obviously hadn't.
My legs are recovering though I did have to go down stairs backwards for a while

Well done mate,I can't begin to imagine how tough that was for you and I'm in awe of your time as well. I've tracked your runs on strava and you've really trained hard and put the miles in so muchos respect!
I had an awful time yesterday at the Scottish Half.I've got a chest infection and sinusitis but didn't want to let my 4 running buddies down and sank a lempsip max before the run and was going through dextrose tablets constantly. Got to around 9.5k and was doing fine but I started feeling really lightheaded and my hands were tingling. I walked for a wee bit but every time I mustered up any pace it was the same. Had to walk the rest of the route,feel a bit of a fraud even taking a medal as I only ran half the distance.

Dehydration makes my hands throb and tingle, you needed to take on more water.
Last year's Nairn half I was like a wet rag on the back 6

Believe me, when your muscles are screaming at you, going down backwards is the lesser of 2 evils
