Very interesting, and some consolation that everyone seems to have similiar results, i.e. slower than hoped.

Great thread idea Nosh!

a) 3:41
b) 3:30
c) 3:23

Like lots of others on the forum I felt fine until about half way (1:45) then really struggled, was tempted to stop but battled through, and it really did feel like a battle between my mind and my body. Was just glad to finish in one piece!
24/04/2007 at 09:41
Actual 4:00
Expected 3:45 (but adjusted to 4:00 pace pretty early on)
Best 3:55
24/04/2007 at 09:43
Actual 5:56
Hoped for 5:15
Best half time 2:14

First marathon (at the age of 56) so not disappointed given the heat!
24/04/2007 at 09:44

b) 3:50
c) 4:09

Although I was close to expected time my HR was through the roof the whole way round.

Average HR was 172 well over 90% of max whereas I had done 4x20 milers in training averaging 162HR & 8:45 per mile.

Interesting reading!

4 38 (actual)
4 30 (hoped for)

4 44 (previous PB - few years ago)
24/04/2007 at 09:58
Well done everyone all winners in my opinion.

3:3:25 (actual)
2:55-2:28(aiming for)
3:10:57 PB 2006
24/04/2007 at 10:02
4.57
4.00
n/a (first marathon)
24/04/2007 at 10:10
Target: 4.00
Finished: 5.16!

No previous maras although done a 20 mile training run in 3.25 and Silverstone half in 1.49
24/04/2007 at 10:13
3:28 (actual)
3:20 (aim)
3:26 (FLM 2005)

Good idea on another thread to look at finish as %age e.g. I came in 10.08% down the field, then compare this %age to other years and coming the same %age down the field would have given a 3:20 in both 2006 & 2004, both cooler years and a 3:24 in 2005. Therefore I conclude that my 2007 run was actually better than my 2005 run even though its 2 min slower.
24/04/2007 at 10:17
4.19 (actual)
sub 4.00 (aim)

first marathon but 1.47 half and 22 mile training run in 3.19
