Just found it.

First half +1525, -89
Second half +388, -9

YKK, I don't think you were one of the 9 as you were always ahead by a few secs (I think), compounded by the fact that the red start started 15 secs later. Question is, was I catching you? Very Happy

Just watched the race of "FlyBys", you put a lot if time into me on the second half. So that was a definite yes. Given you are faster than me at every distance, I should probably not be so cocky Wink

Last year GFA was almost a minute behind the official time, not sure why they cant get all starts in sync.

You wouldn't have thought it would be hard to all blow the hooter at 10.00 !

on your results page, below the certificate, click results display. I think they should award medals for highest net numbers passed.

Not too good a day for me on Sunday, was pretty relaxed before and didn't really know how it would pan out, I expected pain at some point! But on barely 25 MPW and 4 big weeks of 30MPW it was never going to go well. A 30c turnaround in heat since my last race only a few weeks ago probably didn't help either.

Set off around 3:10 pace hoping to get some time in the bank and it felt fairly easy. But after about 2 miles I started feeling my knee twinge, I'd felt this on the last couple of long runs but a combination of massage, ice etc. and running on treadmills and I thought it might have cleared or at least not hurt until later in the race.


I ploughed on and tried to look for the camber in the road to help but it was getting worse, and the heat was starting to get worse, around 8 miles I knew it was getting warm so eased the pace back and it was just going to be a battle to finish from there.


Made it to 14 miles before I had to stop for a stretch, from then on it was a walk, shuffle, stretch and jog to the finish but after deferring last year I was determined to finish. Unfortunately no-one I asked had any ibuprofen and I couldn't be bothered with st John's, TBF they had plenty on their hands with people suffering the heat. I've never seen it so bad, but usually a bit further up the field.

Been quite sore since but is easing with massage of the hammy, glutes etc., and I've got a physio on Monday, who has got very sharp elbows.

Most important thing is to get it better for the tri season, it's only 4 weeks to the slateman, although it was manageable up to 10k.


Also got Chicago later in the year, going off Tony's comments I need to finish that quicker to get to the food Smile

Finish time was 3:53, so a massive PW, done several IM marathons faster.

Tough day Geoff.....!
Very warm, and any issue at all at such an early point is hard work in any race let alone a marathon.

You finished.
Three guys I know got in and we're all looking at sub 4, one was miles under and two missed out.

How slow was the hot London Marathon? I consulted the results and the weather station to make estimates. Rule of thumb figures for a hot versus a cold day are: 2hrs30 (+4mins) 2hrs45 (+6mins) 3hrs (+11mins) 4hrs (+20mins)

That would be too much to ask of poor old Queenie Teevee
