You did great mate, huge kudos for keeping it going, but why on earth did you listen to my tips, @Stuuuuuu and @Tommy_Catons_Perm know far more about this kind of malarkey than I do!!

It looks your advice worked!

Although the splits look quite even, just the first two miles a bit quicker. The first half is in approx 52:41 = 49.5%. The second half in approx 53:42 = 50.5%

I think my marathon pbs had small positive split of about 2%. That's good in my book.

@gaz76 I went with your strategy given the opening 5 miles - a couple of blips and had to dig in to keep the pace below 8:27. Target 1:50; previous PB 1:54; finished in 1:46:28. Absolutely nothing in the tank at the finish line. Splits below:

I was cursing you at the end! Felt pretty good for the most part and just hung in there from Mile 9 onwards knowing I was well ahead of pace.

Did my 10k PB yesterday at the GMR a sub 55 min

GMR App says I ran in 54:02

Garmin/Strava are saying I did it in 53:48

Garmin stated i did it 14 secs earlier than GMR are suggesting, and also the course was finished before the finish line.

Well done, mate - that's good pacing. I didn't do quite as well, suffered a bit from lack of training due to pulling a hamstring 3/4 weeks ago so only managed 1:51 but at least I finished, which was looking unlikely a week or two ago!

Ditto mate - anything sub 2 hrs is decent in my book. What did you think of the course?

The quicker time is what you tell everyone ;-). Warrington HM yesterday was the same. My Garmin clocked a HM before I got to the official finish line.

GPS can be like that. I've ran with a mate using an Apple watch vs my Garmin and I end up having to run further to achieve the same distance. Always cracks me up as I'm sure they feed off the same satellites.
