Welcome Lou. Which mara are you doing in Jan? It's close now...
Gary- based on your 10k time you should be capable of 3h45 according to mcmillan. However based on my experience and other forumites' opinions his predictions tend to be accurate up to a half marathon distance. When it comes to a mara he tends to be on a slightly optimistic side. If I were you I would be aiming for 3h45-3h55. My 10k time was very similar to yours before my first mara and as I said I managed 3h52 on a hilly and hot course (Madrid).
thank you spoons..as you say this is my first mara so i want to just finish and feel okim not too fuseed abt my time. when i decided to do the mara i just went on 4:30 based on my HM times and adding on extra time for the last miles with possible fatigue. if i finish faster thn 4:30 thn its a bonus but i agree with you and will still use 4:30 as my aim.
hi Mon77*waves* im doing Gloucester..if i cant travel there due to bad weather then i may opt for cotswold mara which is 4 weeks later
