Assuming the other thread started by the OP is accurate, he is a 13 y o  boy, so maybe tone it down a bit when replying.

How to stop feeling fatigue during a race?

Posted: Yesterday at 12:10

If your splits are even up until the 3M point then it's weird and hard to know what is causing it (possibly eating too close to the start time, but what would be odd it that always causes a problem at exactly 3M each time).  If your first mile is your fastest by far and your third mile is your slowest (assuming a pretty flat course), your answer is right there: starting too fast.

SB: it's much harder to hit marathon pace in a solo training run.  I take enormous consolation from the fact that my solo MP training run for Frankfurt was (I think) 6.50m/m (possibly 6.45, but certainly no faster) and MP ended up being 6.35m/m.

5M bimble to work this morning.  8.46m/m for the benefit of the pace police.  Legs were toasted from XC on Saturday followed by 20M yesterday.

Wool: I'm not sure why Bristol is classified as part of the Midlands rather than Southerns, but we are, so B&W and other local clubs (Westbury, Bath) all did the Mids on Saturday.

I am doing bath. Not sure what the target will be, but I guess 1.20 or 1.21 would be great.

Sometimes I think Phil's job is actually to track down cheap chocolate.  Which sounds like a very fun job.  Do you need an assistant?
