2H+30 is pretty right for me. I struggled to get under 2h for a half and last year did 1h58 followed by 4h35 at Brighton a few weeks later, which I thought I probably could have done a few minutes faster. I suppose, the faster you are, the smaller the "add on" figure should be. Lord Fetch's patented predictor also suggests my marathon time (which I was quite proud of at the time) was just slightly rubbish by about 5 minutes.

It's taken me a while to find this thread, is there a link to the improved calculator from elsewhere in the site? I looked for it under training-calculators but couldn't find it
