For anyone trying to crack the 3h15 barrier anywhere in the world
Jeez Slokey. That is phenomenal. Well done to you!
CC2 its the Meadows half in Edinburgh. 8 laps with a hill in each lap. I did it last year so know the course and don't remember the hill being too bad although when I looked back on my data earlier it shows a total climb of more than 3000ft. What goes up must come down though. There's a lot of dodging going on in the last few miles as you start to lap people. I need to think about a target this week but this is where my lack of confidence starts to creep in.
Slokey many congratulations. You were hoping for sub 1:30... at what point did you realise you were going to break that by 8 minutes?!!
Chuffing Norah, Slokey - that is awesome! Superb running. Sub 3 beckons.
X-posts - nice work CC, O&O, and Barry in the end as you took yourself right to the limit and then ran out of carbs. Good training though so long as you refuel properly
There are going to be some great spring maras round here soon.
Slokey - Massive congrats, perfect conditions in Blackpool then. That is a huge PB, well done.

That puts my race into perspective RJ Good luck in the 10miler. What's your target?
No it doesn't. You have every right to be very proud of your performance. It's a significant breakthrough for you and we dont get too many of those - so enjoy it.
I will be disappointed if it is not a 53:xx and I have put down a marker of 52:59 as a real stretch on Marchvellous. But not sure, havent had a road race since November.... and obviously a lot depends on how things go on the day, weather, etc...
Evening all - Pleased to see more good long efforts today after those yesterday - step forward Jase, Speedy, Jools,Ant, BOTF, Fraser - and some fine weekly totals to boot.
Splendid off road racing (for differing reasons) by Barry & Poacher (btw, my 20's are already seeming a long while ago . . . .)
and . . .SJ . . . I agree with PMJ - sub three definitely there for you.
Have a good week, all.
