Dan - I think you are doing very well to sub-3 after 4 days of standing up and little natural light, hope you can bag a good result next year with just the race to focus on. It is a brilliant event regardless of how we actually do on the day. Nice photo and that's some impressive FV40 running from your team mate!
Muss - Great report, knowing what sporting governing bodies are like, you never know the rules make change again and you could be at Tokyo 2020
LJB - That's a tidy crop of spring marathon results to be proud of, topped off with a Sub-3 on Sunday, nice one!
Wardi - Sorry I missed you at the pub, I was around long enough to swap times with a few peps, consume a large pasty and wash it down with a pint before heading off with my folks.
Ryan - Kudos for having the balls to go for 2:30 even though you said you thought the HR was high early on in the opening miles. You have run an awesome set of marathons in recent months, 2:30 will come! FWIW I felt I did better this year by having no HR data visible at all, last year I had high HR backed off after 10k, when I reckon, looking back at me relative fitness compared to this year, I should have pushed on and would have probably PB'd (instead of been 20secs over). This year, not as fit, but still extracted a reasonable result (2015 +30sec) despite running the first half a bit hot, if I'd been HR-watching on Sunday it would have likely been the other side of 2:34...
SL - a decent training run then?
Got out for first post London run at lunchtime, 6M nice & easy. Legs felt good, just a few aches from the quads and slightly tight calves, which a massage later should help sort out.
Coro - Cheers, that was the classic marathon running experience yesterday, not been one to encourage the crowd on before, but pick the right places to do it and get the timing right and it doesn't half give you a lift! I'll ping you a message.
Padams - Marathon training obviously prepares you well for other types of endurance events too!
