According to the route and elevation profile from my 620, last year's london marathon involved running up to the top of Canary Wharf tower, diving from the top into the docks and swimming across before rejoining the course. Don't rely on autolap for pacing, use the mile markers as Emmy says.
I think they thought about canning it TR, but it was on a closed circuit with plenty of room for everyone. At least two got blown over off their bikes though. I wouldn't have fancied racing on a bike on open roads today.
Nice one Al, someone was going to do a treadmill 26.2, good pace but rather you than me!
The duathlon went OK, it was blowing a real gale across the airfield so I wasn't expecting much from the bike leg. I'm a lightweight so I got blown all over the place, right off the circuit twice and had to be careful for most of the rest. I even got blown off onto the grass once on the final run, but managed maintain 6 minute pace for it which given the conditions is good for me. At least with TR staying away it stayed relatively dry.
Sorry to hear about everyone's troubles. Hope Cranleigh goes OK tomorrow JH1.
Also parkrun today, my 200th and a lot slower than Dan's, but not too bad after 16 yesterday. A win too, as a brucie bonus.
Tomorrow I'm at the Goodwood duathlon, thanks to TR pointing me in that direction. Running after 40k on the bike (and the first run) I find is handy preparation for the last 10k at VLM, so if I can nail that it'll be a good sign.
