Bit busy of late but been reading back and congrats to Coro on amazing ultra and some big training from the ultra mountain guys SL and Dan and more good racing and multi sport from Padams.
CW u just virtually pipped me in 10km!
I've done no long runs but kept ticking over on 30-40 miles a week in between work trips and house stuff and family things. But happy not to be injured.
Felt like posting after PP's post as I also did the London 10k yesterday. 34:58 for me just 4 secs outside last years pb. I also found it very busy - guess not pushy enough to get to front. There were a lot of folks around me targeting 40-45 mins. Anyway not quite like your stats PP but I passed approx 950 people and zero passed me in 2nd 5km according to the web site results. Think my 2nd 5km was actually a 5km pb.
nice one Dachs, you obviously left it al out there at least! and I had extremely similar last couple of splits at 19:49 then 8:55.... however obviously wasn't trying hard enough as I made it to the pub for a couple, then to another pub for a couple more, then to the sofa at home for a final couple! Great pic,
great pacing PP.
where you folks finding the passed and passed by stats? Mine won't be great.
great stuff TT sounds brilliant day for you. Sorry i missed you at the Red lion, i only stayed for the two london prides.
RS and Dachs, another couple of PB's excellent work! Well done for gutsing it out RS as i imagine that was pretty hard work then the last 6 miles or so (based on how i felt - also ignored a few signs in first half). The sub 230 will come for you for sure.
CD - consistent as ever, congrats.
Nice to see a few people pre and post race and mostly decent ROI's.
I got a pb too which i have to be happy with, but ran pretty poorly i think, setting of way too fast and then whilst my HR monitor did go hey wire for a bit, i still should have known better just by feel and looking at the splits. Went through half way just seconds slower than the half marathon i raced 5 weeks back, so what did i expect really! still held on for a decent pb (around 2 mins) of 2:41:37. I slowed badly at the end, went past 600 metres to go at under 2:40... but that gives me hope i am close enough to go for 2:3x realistically at some point. Just need to do a bit more work (miles) i think.
did enjoy watching CW showboat it over tower bridge (and then pull further and further away from me). CW - you did purposely run away from the blue line to the left side of the bridge to give yourself room for that airplane bit solo didn't you!
