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!
well that's good news TR, doesn't seem to do Jason Day too much harm so hopefully you'll be back to it soon as well! Pity it ended the streak but now as you say no pressure running you can get back to it whenever you feel motivated to.
Joolska oh no what happened? Hope its just final taper madness and all OK! i must admit i've been on ibuprofen for the last week (stopping today pre race) as both hips have got pretty sore. Hopefully just something that will hurt a lot afterwards but not impact the race.
