Think I'll go with this . I'm under no illusions about GPS at London - it'll probably go haywire on at least a few occasions with the tall building, out and back bits and underpasses. Whilst I'll still look at GPS for an approximate guide for average pace, I'll probably stick with the good old time and pace band combo. It would be nice to run with a pacer and not have to concentrate on time, but let's face it, that's taking the easy way out
Oh yes, I always have a back up plan incase GPS fails, which is just use the clock and a pace band (i will be picking up a 3:15 pace band at the expo).
The pacers is something I've been wondering about. I've checked and RW say they will have a pacer for each time goal at the back of every pen. However I can't see them doing this for the champs start? Perhaps a sub 3 pacer maybe but certainly not slower than that surely? I've sent Lit a message to see if she knows. My perfect situation would be if there was a 3:15 pacer at the back of the champs pen and I would stick to them like glue, possibly pushing on in last couple of miles if I had anything left.
Ooh er I'm not sure I'm brave/mental enough for that carter! I get what you're saying, but my time goal is at the top end of what I think I can achieve, so there's no way I'll be running faster than that.
Thanks a lot Carter. I've not been posting regularly on the other threads but I've just caught up this morning with how you got on at Manchester - absolutely amazing!! If I can get a similar time to you I'll be well chuffed . Any tips for me?
