Thank you everyone - It was definitely hot out there! Water over my forearms seemed to help immensely though. My stats I think show the task I had from Pen 4!
First Half - Passed 9098 runners - 5 Passed Me
Second Half - Passed 3897 runners 4 Passed me
1.38.59 First Half, 1.43.40 Second Half so slight positive split but really happy with that as I was decided not to force the pace and enjoy it for the last few miles.
You guys definitely started too far back!!
Just looking at the 3 hour pacers, they came in 3.52, 3.15 and 3.39, assuming the names on here tally up with those that ended up doing it.
Yep lesson learned for next time, be more ambitious with predicted time!I definitely passed a pacer who had blown up, was carrying his flag. May have been the red 3 hour pacer.
I've heard some horrendous tales from the back, some people went 7 miles without a water station apparently. Spectators were buying water to hand out
Some very impressive stats all round there. Great respect to you all. Hope everyone's recovering well.Had a bit of a change of routine to my schedule here. My early morning runs have been shortened and I've added some commuting runs (not that I need to commute as it's only 0.75 miles to work on foot!) So 6 and 3 yesterday, followed by 6 and 5 today plus a sneaky 3 miles at lunchtime. All easy miles for now.
This seems like a nice gesture to 'finish for Matt'. Will probably have a recovery run tomorrow-
