I've worked out that the aim of marathon training is to get you running with tired legs. It then becomes a normal state of affairs for your body, and you just get on with it. Last week I took an unscheduled day off, and ran one day in three. The next run, I felt like Superman - the feeling of having legs that are lactic acid free is amazing. It makes me really look forward to the tapering part of my training. Maybe that's why novices tend to start races too fast - you can't believe how good it feels.
