Glad the calf held up well Tom. Interesting point from Ruth regarding the gel on 160 minutes (makes mental note!)
Wow Malcs - what a half marathon PB! Shows all the hard work is paying off. Re the food, I tend to feel hungry late afternoon and late night too., but try and steadily snack during the afternoon, like fruit & yogurt etc. I think I might need to drink more water?, but I have about 4/5 cups of green tea during the day so should be hydrated.
Brilliant PB too AndyV. I wouldn't dismiss a sub 3 with that current form.
Golfer - you are consistent. I did the same 3 years ago with 2 seconds separating the 2 half marathons.
Big PB Jim - looking good for a sub 3!
Brilliant time too Roundman at Reading especially the latter 5k splits. Shows good speed endurance to pull that out late in the race.
A good 24 miler from you Steve with your bad back. I think a lot of people would have stayed at home.
I may be on the cusp of a sub 3, but I'm going to go for it again and hope the extra endurance (and gel @160 minutes) will help this time round.
