Sub 3 Tom: #asics262

Hi TomI've tried various gels in the past, and tried Torq caffeine gels for my most recent marathon this year, and it's my personal favourite to date! Like CDUB72, I try not to use any gels during training runs, other than to test out new gels including any new flavours 

Sub 3.30 Tim: #asics262

Hope everyone had a great Christmas!

Tim, that's an awesome pace and splits! Truly impressed! I went out with 'normal' shoes this morning and couldn't even walk without slip sliding away! Went straight back in, got my yaktrax on for the first time this year! A most enjoyable run in the end as I was taking my time running rather gingerly! 

Angela, sorry to hear about your Raynaud's. Sarah via twitter @intrepidSarah blogged about how she deals with Raynaud's and running which may help:

Thomas Rann and Cheerful Dave: The VMLM GFA for women (of any age) is sub 3:45. So technically women who have 'quick times' and have GFA may still want to get quicker times, so would fit into sub 3, or even sub 3:30.

Hi Tim, congrats on getting so far in this competition! With you, it's a bit of deja vu a la Malcs!

I had similar issue with timing as you, my marathon time was way off my shorter distances, although I hadn't realised it until I played around with race predictor calculators. When I realised what I should be able to do in marathons, I just believed I can do it, and managed to match my marathon time to my shorter distances! Hopefully asics262 will give you the confidence to get your predicted time !

Karen, that sounds 'fun' running in hailstones and wind - NOT! That's a good time you got there, and you've only got 2 minutes to knock off your PB! Good luck!

Hi Ant McNeill, congrats on getting through the competition so far! Very impressed with the 20s you knocked off your 5k PB - what specifically did you learn from Sam/Steve that resulted in your PB?
