French term or phrase: marathon sur les genoux
C'est ce que je me dis aussi quand je termine un marathon sur les genoux : qu'est-ce que c'est qu'un malheureux kilomètre ?...Sauf qu'il y en avait 41 avant...

Comentário do funcionário numa reunião de avaliação profissional com o seu chefe. Será "terminar uma maratona de rastos", chegar esgotado ao fim de uma sessão de trabalho intensa? O problema é que tenho de manter o jogo de palavras por causa do que vem a seguir sobre os quilómetros...

Obrigada desde já.

L'essentiel concernant le jeu de mots c est de garder "maratona" pour "marathon", car à mon avis ça va être difficile voire impossible de trouver une expression signifiant "de rastos" et comportant "genoux/pieds ou autre organe du genre"!. Je trouve votre traduction "terminar uma maratona de rastos" parfaitement adéquate.
