Some great times coming in by the looks of it....... I'm going to have to wait to join the elusive sub 3 club ..... came within an agonising 19 seconds .... 3:00:18 - but was carrying a slight knee injury and couldn't take nutrition on due to mishaps with the stomach... so have a good list of excuses to go on
There is def another 5mins+ in there on a good day ... its not supposed to be easy I guess! ...... was hoping to give Cracknell and Button a run for their money but sounds like they stormed. Cracknell in 2:50 for a man of 90kg is mighty impressive! Think Jenson was around the 2:52 mark .....
Cheers for the helpful tips guys - its been an education that will be continued...
Any idea of the time splits for the pens have been told that pen 2 on blue is both 2:54-3:04 by someone and 3:00-3:14 by another..... Feeling they may be mixing blue and red up maybe?
Best of luck everyone!
Thanks sj - CJ did the Sheffield Half a couple of years ago, guess he must be local to Sheffield - he seemed disappointed at the finish having only run 1:32 or so ... had a decent conversation with him. Decent bloke.
Me too ES but have a wierd knee niggle that has come out of nowhere so I guess best to rest it till Sunday .... or just a few strides here and there.... off to the expo tomorrow.... the excitement is building!

Best of luck everyone .... might see a few of you in the Red Lion - I'll be wearing a Sheffield Triathlon top most probably. (running in one too) .... just need to get rid of this phantom taper knee niggle now!
