    Plus you should stick to bread and water for nutrition...

    I failed at this, I went with the get up and pretend nothing happened technique, saving the tears for when no one could see me! 🤣

    My understanding is that as it's plug and play you can plug anything in anywhere and it'll work, although I haven't tested that to any major extent.

    What and how much do people eat the night before/morning of a long run, i probably had a bit too much last night, and despite a only having a trek bar and a banana this morning i was in need of the loo from 25km onwards, which kind of ruined doing a marathon paced finish!

    That looks like fun, will take more a look later!

    Just done my first 20 miler, felt awful for the first few miles and considered going back to bed but thankfully was with 2 mates, then as things loosened up felt fine, we've upped the pace a little as we are soling to stay under 75% max hr and as we've all got fitter that's about 15 seconds faster per km, really needed the loo from 18 miles onwards but did the last 1.5 miles at marathon pace (apart from falling over with about 300m to go as I tried to do a dead turn and couldn't react when I slid on pile of gravel - I think I'm channelling @hats ;)) so pretty pleased, I have another three 20 milers so will gradually increase the amount of marathon pace I do!

    His fastest I think, it did close on sub 20 at one point last year but that was in September, Easter seemed a fair bit easier to get into last year, I'd imagine you'd be fine with that, I think in much more marginal!

    Dodgy hr strap/chest interface?

    If it happens again I'd seriously consider a visit to the docs to get an ecg, don't want to concern you but it's better to be safe than sorry!

    in fairness if you look at my thread on my p2 it involved one bit of drilling in reality, some people just under think and overcomplicate shit.

    possibly, my bigger concern is actually the loss of a week training to taper/recover. i think i have a shorter harder week for the sunday in my plan anyway for the surrey half, so perhaps i need to try to repeat without a mini taper rather than go for a PB...
