    3:40 in melb.

    Yesterday did the 40 for 40 birthday social run
    3:35, nearly exactly 2 years since melb and 5 mins faster. Was great to run without the pressure of racing. That’s moving time as there was a few stops to pick up people who didn’t want to do the full distance and some water stops as it got a bit warm towards the end.

    Nice one. It's awful when things start to go wrong. It's not just one thing it’s an entire domino effect.

    I was supposed to run Athens in November but it has been cancelled. Being coached for sub 3:30- BP is 3:37 in Manchester 2 years ago with absolutely zero coaching and 3-4 runs a week on my own and that was including about 5 trips to the toilets so I should comfortably manage sub 3:30 perhaps closer to 3:20 as I have had a coach setting my weekly runs x 5 times a week via Training Peaks.

    I am training/long runs comfortably at 7:25- 7:40 min/miles BUT (and it is a massive but)…we all know that is easier said than done on the day.

    Did a 3hr training run last weekend and comfortably managed 36km including a 2 minute fuel stop plus 15 minute warm up and 15 min cool down on a hilly course. Still going to run a marathon the weekend of the 7/8 Nov but just not sure where yet.
