HELP how do I pace a sub 3:05 marathon?

Posted: 05/05/2016 at 19:13

Well done the sub 3:05 - the fact we all want to know is how you paced it!?

Your time for a first marathon is great so I am sure you will run sub 3 next time.

Hello all - now I have got London marathon out of way it is time to focus on 100k non-stop RTTS. Last year I dipped my toe in the murky waters of ultras and ran 50 miles in about 7:20 but expect RTTS will be hillier and warmer so pace will be slower.

Any ideas on what sort of food/drink will be at the aid stations?

Welcome the newbies.

AlanB -nice 10,000m

Padams - great running especially with a tough last few miles.

I was at the Parkrun to witness a sprightly DanA run 17:xx - though I was loitering about, sipping a coffee and nursing a hangover.

I did manage to go do a 4 hour hike yesterday and 7 miles today, partly with Dan (I promise I am not stalking him - we just live nearby!). Back on the beer again this week so running can wait a few more days.

CW - what is the plan for Wings of Life race?

ES - good to hear your mojo is returning and Wardi is making progress

The results can be found here for previous years but only allows you to search for name and year rather than review all results:

Hiroto -it was great to meet you. Well done on your PB. Also well done on drinking warm beer outside a freezing pub, something I expect which you are not use to in Singapore. Have a good flight home.

TR - wow that is some improvement for LMH. I am reassured that improvements can still be made at 49, as I will be that next year.

Wardi - the tube journey sounds a nightmare. It makes me even appreciate more what our supporters go through.

Just looked at the stats and I passed 162 and was passed by 69 - I had assumed it was more even than that.

Great to catch up with lots of you at the Red Lion yesterday. Some amazing runs by lots of you as ever.

I managed to get round in 2:58:02 - was hoping and expecting to go a bit quicker but nothing in legs - though I did manage a sprint at the end in the vain attempt to get under 2:58 but to no avail. I should not be too disappointed as it is actually my quickest London time - first one was 3:25 in 1996!

I hear we get a free burger at GBK if we present our medal today - so I know where I am a having lunch

Selbs, TJB - I will hopefully catch up with you at FGFA and the rest of thread in the Red Lion.

CC2 - really sorry to hear your sad news, I hope you have a good run. Plus you can have my moisturiser. I have considered using it my cat but I think he may object.

ES sorry to hear of your injury woes but at least you now appear to have a firm diagnosis. I was wondering earlier what you were up to as I do remember your storming run last year and drinks at Red Lion.

Nice big flag PP - lets hope the wind dies down.

I remember well TJB. We then randomly met again straight after the race when you asked me about my banana! Sorry I missed your post earlier as I was at expo at same time. Had a good chat with Dan and few other non-formites.

I am working from  home tomorrow so looking forward to some leisurely  carbo loading.

The weather forecast looks like a chilly one then.
