http://www.runningforfitness.org/calc/racepaces/rp?metres=10000&hr=0&min=40&sec=09&age=42&gender=M&Submit=Calculate gives 2hrs 55
Or just double your half time and add 20 mins. Gives a 3hrs 08 estimate
Do you think the half was measured correctly - 6 mins is a big difference in your times ?
Can't help thinking people are looking for miracles here.
If you managed to convert an 87 min half to a 3:35 marathon (and assuming you didn't go off ridiculously fast) previously then you're likely to be in the range of 3:20+ off an 84 minute half unless your training has been significantly higher which it hasn't.
1) the half (Helsby 2011) was correct distance.
2) the 3.35 marathon was 31/05/2010 off about 20-30mile weeks average about 7.30pace.
during this run i did 7.10 pace every mile up to 24 but faded badly in last two miles.
3) (for a perspective on fitness) today in trainning after 40miles in the previous 4 days i did a 21.06mile time trial at about 7/10 effort in 2hrs 33mins still felt relatively okay on finishing.
ADVICE/HELP/TIPS greatly appreciated THANKYOU.
