I'm afraid I still used my old plan for my last race but at least I managed a 3.13, and I've stayed with it for my up and coming autumn marathon. I just seem to feel that bit more confident with longer runs and more mileage. Perhaps as I get older I may need to drop the mileage and then I will look at Asics from a different perspective.
Wow - this VDOT calculator's great and paces are really sensible based on my latest races; also reassuring to know that the paces I'm aiming to hit are appropriate. I've never seen this one before and it appears to be the most realistic.
