Just beat my HM PB by 9 minutes :D
All meant in the best spirit D2D,
Right off for marathon LSSSR 16m
First of all congratulations, bit better than I expected. Still a long way off sub 20 though...
Secondly, it´s easy to be free from outside pressure: don´t make claims you fail to substanciate with results.Tbh, whether your training routes are correctly measured or not doesn´t matter for you, as you can still measure your progress on them.Whether your route is 6 miles or 6.5 miles doesn´t matter much in training effect either.
It only starts to matter if you race your training routes and then insist that they are accurate when boasting about training route times.
About converting this better than McMillan suggests to the half, I'm doubtful for a self-proclaimed marathon specialist that refers to 10 mile runs as ´long runs´. Sorry about that.

TNH was the nearest!!
What do I win?
I still think thats a decent time 'cause I haven't beat 25m even in training.
good result D2D............but as i suggested yesterday I think it will take a few attempts for you to get used to the distance to get closer to the sub 20..............and yes we did suggest rest......I will be interested to see if you do next week..........
have a good weekend
Well done D2D. You put yourself under a lot of pressure, but we enjoyed the anticipation! I even managed a 9-miler this morning! Good luck for your next race.
I want to know what JM thinks!
Thanks all, especially Pipes - means a lot coming from such a speedy lady!
How did your hubby find it?
Are you coming next weekend?
Well done D2D - I'd be happy with that time.
I avoid short races as I don't like the discomfort. Never raced 5k and my 10k pb is around 44mins, even though my HM and M times are under 1:31 and 3:16 respectively.
Maybe you've found you're best distance?
Good luck with your progress.
I'm all muddy after a 16km off road so it's a rest for all concerned this afternoon - Off to go shopping
Jokermans not posted because he's been out buying some new kit....
JM is still travelling home after travelling the length of the country to watch D2D run in person............if only you knew that he was secretly watching you D2D.......
he was in perfect disguise as henry the mild mannered janitor
Whats the score with comparing mens and womens times?? How much faster should a bloke be then??
Very well done on 1st woman D2D but not mega impressed with the time if i'm honest, sub 20 would be a different story though. Good luck for next week!!
I think JM is actually a member of my gym.
There's an old guy in there that walks backwards on the treadmill that matches my visual of JM in my head.
He was there this aft. too - it's gotta be him lol.
Results are up. Damn, my Garmin time was 4 seconds out! (Or they're 4 minutes out... they did say they screwed up timing last week...)
Nice to be 3rd in female league
