Dave is finished. Fantastic time from him. I will never ever ever get anywhere close to that.
Forgot to add that he finished in 2;37. legend from where I am sitting.
Come on Will. You can do it. Must be getting warm out there now and the legs will be hurting but keep focussed. Will is through 35k and has slowed a little over the last 5k. Go Will Go.
Thanks for the updates Carl! I too have long since given up trying to get on Runner's World on my phone!!!
Dave- aMAZing time!!!!! Wow, wow, wow!!!
Can't wait to hear how Will does!
Thanks all - very happy with that, 1:18:18 and 1:19:18 for each half which I'd have taken from the start, especially since I was nursing cramping calves for the last 10k.
I see Will slowed towards the end, it was feeling warm in the sun by then. Hope he's OK.
Does anyone know Will's time?
Dave, how are you feeling now? Elated?
That's a cracking run Dave, well done. Is that a new PB for you ?
Dave - fantastic run from you today. I guessed you would be fast and thought you might be a sub 2:45 runner but 2:37 is just fantastic. It was getting warm out there as the morning progressed. But to get that time with cramping calves is amazing. Well done you.
Will - great run from you today. We are all proud of you.
Amazing report Will! Well done!! It sounds like a fantastic experience!!!
What's next now the marathon is over? A break? Or are you planning your next race already?
Will - you might not have got sub 4 this time but you did amazing.
26.2 miles is an incredibly long way and it is not everytime that things come together for the perfect race. London is not as easy as people suggest as there are alot of runners and it is crowded (as paris was). This is not what you experience in training. It was much hotter out there today than the last 3 /4 months. Again difficult to train for. And fuelling is an issue when running longer than 3:30 I reckon. I am not a big fan of gels and so many people talk about getting an upset stomach on race day. Again this is different from LSR's where you do not take 3 or 4 gels.
But everytime you run one of these things you learn a little more and you inevitably will do better the next time as you know what to expect.
You did fantastic. Take the week off. You deserve a little rest.
Great race Will - not without it's dramas which you worked around brilliantly to bring it home in a great time!Congrats - you must be on such a high No such heroics from me today - ran 46.20 in my first ever 10k... a PB's a PB though!
Hello!! Just been catching up on everyones times and running; all so amazing! Very inspiring!! I have not been on this thread for ages, but Rachel suggested I come on to ask advice..so any advice would be appreciated! Im due to run the Manchester Marathon on sunday...but last week I had to go to the doctors and have my foot x-rayed and it came up with a stress fracture, was so gutted! But by saturday, most of the swelling had gone down, I could move all of my toes which i hadnt been able to do and it wasnt painful so I actually went for a little run and was completely painfree! So today at fracture clinic I told the doctor this, he prodded the bump above where the fracture should be and as I am completely without pain..said that as long as that remains the same I can run!! Wooo!! So am back on for it!! But I dont know what to do this week..in the past week all Ive ran is 10 miles and 3 miles. So part of my brain wants to get in some extra miles but dont think thats wise? Would just appreciate any advice on what to do!
Thank you! Will look into elastic laces!
