RW Forum Six - Sub 3:30

Posted: Today at 07:14
Nell - wow, what can I say? You said at the start you were going for it and boy did you deliver!

2old - great meeting you too. and I'm glad I didn't go at your pace - fantastic PB! Hope you have a well deserved hangover today. And congrats to Miss2old as well - that's a huge chunk off her PB

AA - incredible strength to do that only 6 days after Boston. Just awesome!

Carrot - you looked great when you came past me at 4 miles. I'm really pleased you got such a brilliant time.

KFC - great PB and as you say it's getting closer. Next time

O4S - sub 4 with plenty to spare! Fantastic....but will you get your 5k in today?

Interesting what you say about the positions - my overall placing was about 500 places lower than when I did 3.16. I think I scraped into the top 10% but not by much. 284th female this year compared to 248th two years ago. 28th F45 which I'm chuffed with.

CD totally nailed his race too - continuing his string of I don't know how many sub 2.40s with a 2.38. And we'll get to go to the same start next year

First to report in....3.13.43 chip time. Can't quite believe I actually did it, particularly as my first half was too quick and I really had to hold it together. But never felt the sub 3.15 was slipping away and I was grinning down the Mall. As I looked at the clock I was then wanting to go sub 3.14 which is daft really but it made me put a bit of a spurt on!

I haven't looked anyone up yet but did see Slowkoala at the end and she had a brilliant run too. But looking forward to reading all the reports - I'll write up something longer later in the week. But right now I'm heading home for food and vino

Wow can't believe I'm writing this - 3.13.43 chip time . Suicidal pacing first half but held it together and always felt I had enough in the tank for the sub 3.15. Was grinning down the mall! Bring on the champs start for 2016 - not bad for an old bird!

Saw 2old, O4S, Brolish, Nell and AA at the start, and Carrot who skipped past me at mile 4. Also later saw Col who used to be on here.

And big shout from Minni at mile 22 - thanks I needed that!

My legs hurt big time - I'll be in a world of pain tomorrow!

Quick bit of stalking - some awesome results from the team! Can't wait to read your reports. I'll write up something longer next week. Right now off home for some dinner and vino

Barry - nightmare for you! You've had such bad luck with marathons but I really thought you'd laid that demon to rest this time around.

On the train to London Bridge and the Maze Hill. See some of you soon

On my way into London. But I'm going to London Bridge and can't get to Blackheath from there. So will be going direct to Maze Hill and Green. Sorry to miss the bench but I'll look out for the Swiss PM at mile 10

2old - I'm in pen 2 as well. On green pens 1 and 2 are joined - a couple of years ago Minni, AA and I got in there first and were right up against the rope looking straight at the start line. Trouble is they bring the celebs out in front so you can't get right to the front but it won't be more than 10-20 seconds to cross the line.

I've not done the journey from CharingCross. Probably means going to Blackheath? Maybe 15 minute walk from there.

Barry ??

I'm at Waterloo on my way to my brothers. Feeling nervous but confident at the same time!

See some of you tomorrow at the start and good luck to everyone

Minni - when do you think you'll get to Chandos?  I'm not sure yet if I'll go there, depends on timings - OH and I have been asked to an event at our local pub which I want to go to (even though I may end up going straight when I get back looking like a complete mess!). 

Anyway will look out for you at 13/22.  Presume you are on the 22 side of the road?  Hopefully I'll make it that far this year

I should be on Green quite early. Last year O4S and I found each other first and then the rest after that. I'm sure we'll find each other.

Glute not aching today. Still not risking a run but feel happy. Mind you I'm already getting that sick to the stomach feeling and it's only Friday!

Carrot - shame we won't see you at the start. Have a great time on Champs and go smash it

Freemers - 26917 - reddish t-shirt with ANNE in white letters (same as my avatar). Black shorts. Over-stocked gel belt. Raspberry-pink trainers with lime green trim . Target sub 3.15.

Still don't know if I'll be at the bench but if I am it would be earlier than 8.50 as I want to get to Green in good time to meet up with some other friends there.

Sean - bit of a faff yes, but pretty simple in the end and does save you trying to find your way on foot.  At custom house you don't even need to get to street level - just follow the Virgin Money banners!  Plus if you start from Waterloo it's only one change at Canning Town.  Yesterday I did Liverpool Street - Stratford - Canning Town - Custom House in about 25 minutes.
