    Did you have a nap? Was the plan always to go out faster for the first half or so? I guess its easier to run at a normal pace than try and set out at average pace? Interested to know the method!

    Sophie Kirk nope, no naps, yes, basically there's always going to be a natural deterioration in pace over that distance. I was taking more walk breaks towards the end (and being sick a lot 😳) but there's definitely no such thing as aiming for a negative split over that distance

    Cat Simpson - I've stupidly signed up for Chiltern Way 214k next weekend and am very undertrained (6month training plan +6month old baby = not compatible). I know the physical part will be tough, but any secrets for beating the demons?

    Matt Parker-Parker haha good luck! Definitely anything that helps you stay in a positive mindset and distracted, stuff like counting, music, etc. Hope it goes well!
