    Good work! Is that what you were hoping for?

    Thanks Rich! Actually that was pretty tragic -- I've had a good streak of sub-2:40s for quite a while now, so this was about 5 mins below par, and it certainly felt like I was struggling from about 16M. To be fair my holiday ultra adventures weren't ideal prep, but were worth doing, so I can't complain!

    May not have been what you were hoping for but that's still a great time

    I did wonder. As Jon says above though, great time and effort!

    It would be boring CHarlie if you ran 2.38 every race. Chester is quite competitive if you only get 10th with that time.

    Thanks guys! Certainly my vet class was well stacked, being both the England vs Celts thing and the qualifier for same for next year, and BMAF champs. Which is good -- I feel less cynical about it if it proves to be a proper dust-up. Jon, I added runcambridge results and note that even with your dodgy calf you were a whisker under 85% WAVA -- better than I've ever done. Class!

    You are still an absolute legend Charlie. And there is more sub 240 in you yet! Good on you for doing something crazy in the build up and still giving it a go!

    Cheers Matt, you'll not be able to call me Mr Consistency any more though!

    I still think you can claim that tag Charlie! Especially compared to the rest of us!

    You probably drop your slightly weaker runs in and regular well separated intervals that could be describe as consistent :-) So it's just another dimension to Mr Consistency ;-)

    Great time all the same. Well done.

    Thanks! And James -- you're quite right, I have plenty of disappointing 10Ks and HMs to fit the pattern; it's just that the big target marathons seemed to be immune...

Kudos
