Welcome Pegasus, you're in the right place. Loch Ness is on my list to do so will be good to hear your report once you've smashed it
mamafox - Within 4mins of your pb is good going, like others have said the weather would have hurt you more than you think & sounds like you finished strongly. Sometimes just doesn't come together on the day as you'd like, but at least you made it to this one!
Good effort Keith.
Mowzer - Could it just be multiple marathons catching up on your legs ? you must have bags of stamina! Post marathon I always find my legs are empty for at least 4 weeks. I find I can run easily enough but don't have any power/accleration and get tired easily on the longer runs.
Another 4secs off my parkrun pb , did the Oxford event. 21:54. Predicted marathon time of 3:29:40 from the 5km time! , sub 4 should be easy then right!
Well done sk, that's a really great time and reward for all the hard training. Very even splits as well for first half/2nd half, looks like you go it spot on.
Emmy - 100!!! sweeeet. How you can run a 4min pb for a 10k the day after is beyond me, i can usually shuffle a 5k but not at any pace.
I've had a good long weekend away in London/Oxford, tiring though. Saw Paula twice (looked very comfortable at 35k), Jenson Button & Chris Evans. Elites never cease to amaze me how fast they are. Spectating is hardwork, I'd much rather had been running .
