Thanks again for all the feedback folks. The shortage of 20 milers was definitely niggling my conscience, although I took some solace from the fact that my average weekly mileage was higher than that in the run up to Manchester. I reckon I'll lengthen the Sunday Long Runs in the future, and work on a faster section towards the end.

You sound like Arthur Lydiard himself there PtB - those Kiwi chaps did a hilly 20 miler every week, didn`t do them any harm. I`m sure that`s the way to go myself ( can`t afford the flights right now, but wouldn`t mind giving their Waitorua route a go sometime).

Sounds like a good plan Fergus, as said by many earlier you are just needing a few tweaks to get under than magic 3hr barrier.
