First steps after the marathon

It's Bank Holiday Monday, and I am now all set up in my running gear (always important to buy a new set at the marathon expo, so you have something to look forward to when you go for the first run after the big day!). Nice stuff from Gore as well...

8 days since I last pulled on a running shoe...long enough to miss it and want it again..

..still disappointed (a bit) over my London performance, but getting over it...3:38 still a great time, and I know I throttled back in the second half anyway as I knew I wasn't on for  PB or qualification time. I reckon that's why I am not so knackered now.

..have had a week of good food and wine, nothing spectacular, just some pleasing bottles - sitting here now I can remember:

Volnay Vielles Vignes Nicolas Potel 2005, silky yet with a bit of tannic bite
Vigna Flaminia Rosato by Vallone, from Brindisi, a lovely dry and rich wine, made from Montepulciano and Negroamaro grapes, perfect with tuna steaks
Hannibal 2004 by Bouchard Findlayson, a strange blend of Pinot, Sangiovese and Rhone grapes..light yet heavy, if that makes sense!

Will start to write again next week, I think, less formulaic..

Pip pip

John.
