Wow, some fantastic results again this year – congratulations!!
The positive attitude of this thread continues to act as an inspiration and the progress made by many is staggering. I paid particular attention to training experiences of LuckyJim, CharlieW and PhilPub and I am still learning so much from reading about other runners’ thoughts. I followed the PnD first edition 18 week (up to 70 miles) religiously this year and it got me a reasonably well executed 3h13 (+2 split), but sadly sub 3 was never on the cards. Enjoy the recovery everyone.
Morning. TR, it's good to hear of a 52 year old pb-ing. Gives this 51 year old hope for a sub 3 yet ... next year! Good luck to everyone with the final preparations. Does anyone else go by heart rate for the first half? I'm at 156 bpm until Tower Bridge
