OK, had a bit more time now, so a better post!
Dan - as I said before, massive congrats. I wonder now you've broken that barrier whether you can go even better? Or maybe you feel like that's the marathon done for you and you stick to the longer stuff?
JAP - that's a great run given your build-up. I guess it shows that mileage and experience over the years can get you pretty far even if the months preceding are not ideal.
Wardi - I thought you might do the whole thing! I bet it was good fun, rather than chasing a time.
JoeH - well done, and that's a lot of marathons. You should have joined in sooner - the thread is meant to be "For anyone trying to crack the 3 in any marathon anywhere in the world"!
Well done also to the HMers, particularly ES with a huge PB.
Commiserations to the benchees, seems like there are quite a few at the moment. Hope you all see some improvement in the next few days.
22M for me on Saturday (easy pace except for last few miles) and 8.5M on Sunday made 86M for the week, again my highest since 2009. Need to nail the next 6 days before leaving for skiing on Saturday afternoon....
Was at the rugby on Saturday, which meant beers starting at 1pm and some not-so-healthy food, but I felt that it was acceptable given the morning run!
