    This is often claimed but it actually doesn't stand up to scrutiny. The majority of records and PBs have been found to have been run with a slight positive split - the second half taking about 5% slower than the first.

    So are you going to stop or have a day off after this nice round number or carry on?

    James

    For me, James are The Great Misunderstood Band. I genuinely believe that if they were around in the 70s, they would be considered alongside Bowie and Floyd. Even the likes of Brian Eno regard them to be of this standard (e.g. he describes the first time he heard Sometimes as being the highest...

    Can't speak for the Manchester Marathon but I've seen a number of lads running London in City shirts.

    I always used to watch on the big screen at The World's End (Finsbury Park branch) although it was back in the day and it's an Arsenal pub... I normally stay around Kings Cross when I visit London these days as so many tube lines go through there, you can get pretty much anywhere with minimal...

    Can't remember cos I entered 2 or 3 years ago then had to defer cos I got bad tonsillitis... then Covid happened. It is a ballot, however I'm sure that you're a lot more likely to get a place compared to London. I just Googled it and the ballot for 2022 opens in January.

    This morning was the Great North Run and I must say, I was very impressed. Superb organisation and a HUGE event. It's a different route this year; I would describe it as 'gently undulating' - you seemed to be always going up or downhill. The support and general atmosphere were superb. Red Arrows...

    It finishes near where it starts this year but that is a one-off. The London Marathon finishes a long way from the start but I guess London's transport is so good that it doesn't matter.

    Sounds like you're smashing it, @Paladin. For the end-of-run routine, it's often suggested that it's a good idea to actually keep moving rather than stopping. One way of doing this is to walk at the end of your run for maybe half a mile or so. Also, eat something when you can, and obviously...
