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.
