Two weeks ago, Ian Livesey recorded a 2 hour 31 minute time in the Chester Marathon. Most people would have accepted that and had a recovery period before embarking on their next challenge. Not so Ian. Two weeks after one marathon, he entered another.
Another issue was that on his visit to Bruges, he got deviated from concentrating on running by beer tasting and goodness knows what else. The result was a time that did not reflect his true capabilities.
But we are amateur runners and maybe a fun weekend in Bruges, coupled with a bit of a run out, was a great break from every day living. So well done Ian. Two marathons in two weeks coupled with a a bit of time out on the town sounds like a great work / life balance.
