Welcome LOGIC nice half where do you live? you must be close to me (Grantham) doing Newark and Nottingham. My first sub 4 came in the same way on the old Newark half route. Just read your comments about time training. I now do ultras so any questions just ask. Last year I did a 100 miler with 50 miles as the longest I had done. Past 5 hours I think its more about the head than the body at this level (elite different) and you risk arriving at start tired. Nottingham has pace makers USE THEM. Last year sub 4 runner did 3.59.57!

IKLE Keep the faith you will get there running when you should be resting/sleeping is a LOT harder I know
me well think sub 4 is well off but doing 3 maras in the last month is never going to help. Up to 76 now so 3/4 of way to target. Its a while off as not going to chase and best guess id 2018 but I will keep you all informed as would be very special if 1 or 2 of you could be there
From my experience martin would agree. On both my comrades really did not want anything from half way but forced it down but on the 100 took my "picnic" with me after every aid station which was sausage rolls etc and was more than ready every time.
Seabank marathon sunday not even going to have a watch ascoff road and dunes and styles. Really looking forward to it. Also doing the not the rio marathon on Olympic park 21st Aug with the finish inside the velodrome. Never got any tickets at the time so should be good if expensive
Went and watched more tired than running it. My super speedy niece was 6th in london and 19th overall in mini marathon so proud. Really intresting to see how the numbers built as time went so many sub 3!!!!!!!!
