    Best Strava trace EVER

    https://www.strava.com/activities/1448023551

    Southend Pier marathon. After a week of managing tendinitis and glute issues, will happily take a time of about 4.12, include being battered by @Steve Foster who is a machine at the moment in his 100 in 100 quest.

    First marathon ever on the pier apparently. Wasnít as dull as it sounds and the time clicked by OK. Another creative thinking masterpiece by the loons at Sussex Trail Events.
    Agreed, the Strava is magnificent. Starting that would have driven me insane. Massive kudos for finishing it.

      Question about the accuracy of apps. I use Nike+ on an I-phone 7. Went running with a mate off the ship for a 10k in Alicante last week. His watch, Samsung, measured it at only 7.5k. That's a big difference. I'm pretty sure that the Nike+ app is pretty accurate, especially running outdoors as it uses GPS. Any thoughts?

      Early bird entries for the NSC favourite half (Worthing) has just opened. £26.50 which isn't bad, still 50+ spaces left at that price then it goes up to £31.50 for the next 50.

      Discount code is on their website.

      Post script. The official results have me at 25.30 and @Greg Bobkin at 24.59 when we crossed the line together. I assume caused by the massive FAFF I was doing looking for my bar code. So, for once, I'm taking the unofficial watch time. 25.00 just looks SO much better
      Just had a look at this and I reckon you're the 133rd placed 'unknown'. I'm 99.9% sure you were two in front of me when we finished and I'm placed 135. If you're THAT bothered about it, I bet you can get it sorted with the team (I had to do it last week when I was down as an unknown due to a scanning cock-up) via the FB group or email...

      Either way, a cracking sprint finish past the basketball courts and final stretch.

      Any tracking on a phone will be a bit crap.....and unless itís a proper GPS running watch Iíd be dubious about the results. They donít ping the satellites often enough.

      I used Nike+ for years (on iPod and then on a phone). It was only when I switched to a Garmin I realised how inaccurate it could be sometimes. So Nike+ tracking 10k for what is actually a 7.5k run in the real would doesn't sound too surprising, I'm afraid...

      Cheers! No, really not that bothered beyond here. It doesnít matter, I know what I did and I donít want to give much needed volunteers grief. But I know that on here we check each otherís Strava and race results so just wanted to call out the discrepancy.

      Was actually happier with the last part of that run than I have been with any other run since coming back.

      So I literally just finished my 20 miler to add to my 17 last weekend. 3hrs 40 - had to walk a few times at end up hills as hamstring hurt... I am a month from my marathon (Paris) - someone pls give me some confidence that with one more long run and several shorter ones and Hastings half that I can do it... pls! Ps hammy injury is helped if I stop every couple of miles to stretch once I get past 10 miles!
      Yes you can do it! Not much time left so better not to repeat the 20.
      Be careful with Hasting's Half the long downhill can ruin tired legs from the long uphill start. Best to relax and not go flat out despite that tempting descent.

      That's probably all down to the pacer and his 'encouragement' during the last km

      Got date wrong so now not doing it. Maybe one more long run and a few 6-10 milers to taper and see what I can squeeze in. Working full time and having a daughter makes training time tricky but 12.5 / 13 / 17 / 20 in the last 4 weeks have helped.
      Seeing kids in the school or in the parks with Albion shirts instead of the big clubs and easy ones, thatís it. We have done it.
