Wendy & Chris Complete The Stockholm Marathon!
Thank you for the training plan. I finished the marathon in 4 hours 40 minutes and my husband Chris came in at 3 hours 46 which are both awesome times :-)
Stockholm was such an amazing place to run in; loads of support on the way round and lots to see as you go. I thoroughly enjoyed the race, well, apart from the 38-40 km when things started to hurt! The last kilometre was awesome though, with a finish in the Olympic Stadium; I even 'sprinted' the last 100 metres!!
I'm sure I wouldn't have enjoyed it as much if I hadn't been as well prepared for it - thank you for a fantastic training plan! It was really well thought out; flexible where it needed to be, and actually built my confidence progressively as I could see and feel the improvements in stamina, endurance, pacing, strength etc. At the start of the race I knew I could get round, and that's so far away from where my confidence was at the start of training!
