We'll never know though will we?
Our friend from yesterday was a self-proclaimed expert as well...
He works in a shoe shop.
No excuses required D2D, an excellent time. Well done.
A bit of a middle ground result in terms of the RW Forumites speculation. Not fast enough to quite live up to what the training times indicated was possible, but fast enough to be a very good time, showing improvement from the recent 10K.
Maybe we should all start doing Long "Scheduled" Runs?
Shall we open the book on D2D's Milton Keynes half marathon time then?
I've plugged her (unofficial) 5k time into McMillan and it's suggesting 1:39. I'm gonna give her revolutionary training plan and penchant for longer distances the benefit of the doubt and suggest she could target sub-1:35.
Artie - I'm sticking with my Long Scheduled Hangover today, but I've got a Long Steady Slowish Run Scheduled for tomorrow.
All meant in the best spirit D2D,
Right off for marathon LSSSR 16m
First of all congratulations, bit better than I expected. Still a long way off sub 20 though...
Secondly, it´s easy to be free from outside pressure: don´t make claims you fail to substanciate with results.Tbh, whether your training routes are correctly measured or not doesn´t matter for you, as you can still measure your progress on them.Whether your route is 6 miles or 6.5 miles doesn´t matter much in training effect either.
It only starts to matter if you race your training routes and then insist that they are accurate when boasting about training route times.
About converting this better than McMillan suggests to the half, I'm doubtful for a self-proclaimed marathon specialist that refers to 10 mile runs as ´long runs´. Sorry about that.

TNH was the nearest!!
What do I win?
I still think thats a decent time 'cause I haven't beat 25m even in training.
good result D2D............but as i suggested yesterday I think it will take a few attempts for you to get used to the distance to get closer to the sub 20..............and yes we did suggest rest......I will be interested to see if you do next week..........
have a good weekend
Well done D2D. You put yourself under a lot of pressure, but we enjoyed the anticipation! I even managed a 9-miler this morning! Good luck for your next race.
I want to know what JM thinks!
Well done D2D - I'd be happy with that time.
I avoid short races as I don't like the discomfort. Never raced 5k and my 10k pb is around 44mins, even though my HM and M times are under 1:31 and 3:16 respectively.
Maybe you've found you're best distance?
Good luck with your progress.
I'm all muddy after a 16km off road so it's a rest for all concerned this afternoon - Off to go shopping
Jokermans not posted because he's been out buying some new kit....
JM is still travelling home after travelling the length of the country to watch D2D run in person............if only you knew that he was secretly watching you D2D.......
he was in perfect disguise as henry the mild mannered janitor
Whats the score with comparing mens and womens times?? How much faster should a bloke be then??
Very well done on 1st woman D2D but not mega impressed with the time if i'm honest, sub 20 would be a different story though. Good luck for next week!!
JM sends D2D secret messages of lurve and they plan to run away together at a LSSR pace, without even being out of breath
ahhh.. true love at its best...
