Thanks Roundman and Nayan- Well done Roundman great Paris result!
I think the half PB is something I really need to work on before a further sub 3:00 attempt.
When I ran 3:12 I had a HM PB(again in training) of 1:29 and did a 1:35-1:37 marathon split.
I was trying to run sub 3 from hitting all training paces-getting 10k and 5k to where I wanted them but never running a full effort HM-though I would have been capable of 82 mins ish (from some 8 mile tempos at 6:20 pace) but thinking and doing is a different thing!
I want to get to a stage where 1:28 HM is well within me and done a number of times so a 1:28-1:30 split would be comfortably achievable(in marathon context ) -Rather than 1:28 and just holding on for grim death to the sub 3
