Maratona de Madrid 2015

No passado dia 26 de Abril disputou-se a 38ª edição da Maratona de Madrid e em simultâneo também uma meia maratona e uma corrida de 10 km. Havia portanto distâncias para todos os gostos e preparações. Desta forma é possível que mais pessoas vão a Madrid participar na grande festa do atletismo. Em 2014 tivemos alguns corredores na meia e outros na maratona.

A prova é difícil uma vez que tem inúmeras subidas que totalizam mais de 500 metros. Não tem portanto nada a ver com as maratonas planas que conhecemos e de que tanto gostamos como Sevilha e Porto. Mas porque é uma maratona mais exigente a satisfação de a fazer é maior e a entrada no Parque do Retiro tem um sabor especial.

 

 

A prova começa na Praça de Cibeles às 9h00 e este ano tinha cerca de 15.000 inscritos para a maratona. Os primeiros 6 km são sempre a subir no Paseo de la Castellana numa grande recta. Seguem-se 7 a 8 km de ligeira descida mas que permitem aumentar um pouco a velocidade e descontrair um pouco. Até ao km 25 o percurso apresenta algumas subidas e as respectivas descidas que vão no entanto desgastando os corredores. Entre os km 26 e 28 temos uma acentuada subida na zona da Casa de Campo. Até ao km 33 o trajecto é a descer ou quase plano e a partir daí as coisas complicam-se! Até ao km 40 é praticamente sempre a subir e quem não estiver realmente bem preparado vai acusar bastante o desgaste e cada km torna-se mais lento. A partir daí desce ligeiramente e entramos no Parque do Retiro onde corremos algumas centenas de metros até cruzar a linha de meta.

O público espanhol é fantástico e desloca-se aos milhares para apoiar os corredores. Estão sempre a gritar palavras de incentivo como “campeon” e “ânimo”. Vi um enorme cartaz que tinha escrito: “ O vosso esforço é o nosso orgulho” e no meu caso que tenho a bandeira estampada na t-shirt e o nome, várias pessoas gritaram “Fuerza Jorge de Portugal”. Arrepiante! Por volta do km 19 e mais concretamente na zona das Portas do Sol e dada a presença de milhares de pessoas, passávamos por um estreito corredor de uns 2 metros de largura, onde o barulho era ensurdecedor. Não sei o que acontece com os outros corredores mas comigo estes estímulos funcionam e mesmo quando bastante cansado este apoio dá-me um shot motivacional e lá acelero um pouco.

Em relação à minha prova e dada a preparação que fiz ou antes que não fiz, a maratona até não correu mal. Comecei com uma cadência de 5:30/km nos primeiros 6 km de subida e depois aumentei o ritmo e passei nos 21,097 km com uma cadência de 5:18/km. Mantive mais alguns km e depois tive um problema com um gel que me obrigou a uma paragem de alguns minutos. A partir daí já não consegui retomar o ritmo inicial e ao km 35 tinha uma cadência de 5:39/km. Entre os km 33 e 40 é sempre a subir e a cada km que passava eu ia baixando o ritmo. É nesta zona que se faz a última selecção e onde vem ao de cima a preparação dos corredores! Passei a meta com 4:03:53 o que equivale a uma média de 5:47/km.

 

A chuva esteve sempre presente embora no início com pouca intensidade e foi depois aumentando e nos últimos km caía com muita intensidade. A roupa estava tão ensopada que me assou onde nunca me tinha ocorrido e portanto nas zonas que não estavam protegidas… Nada que o Halibut não resolva. Seguiu-se o almoço de recuperação e depois o regresso a Lisboa.

 

Outro aliciante de Madrid tem que ver com o facto de ser fácil participar nesta maratona. Até 2 a 3 semanas antes ainda é possível a inscrição e basta sair de Lisboa no sábado de manhã e voltar domingo à hora de jantar. É um pouco cansativo mas por outro lado é prático e económico.

Espero voltar em 2016.

So presenting the research data became a bit hard. Most scammers and
spammers hide behind false names and you should not want to advance giving their photograph around.

Land-based casinos don't have this kind of privilege.
Now, when new players sign almost play slots online, they are offered plenty of sign up bonuses.
Choose how much great bet and stick onto it.

Hey would you mind letting me know which hosting company you're using?
I've loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say

Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to
understand so much about this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something.
I feel that you just could do with a few p.c.

that is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I'll definitely be back.

Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could
take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
