Sub 85 HM for me is a sign of pretty good fitness. I do wonder if I will ever get back there though :-(

I’m slowly returning to miles but I’ve always figured that a sub 85 was an indication that sub3 could be on.

well, well well.... as the thread owner from years ago *when I could break 85 (only the once at Gosport 83:46), now i struggle to break wind....:-) :-) :-)

If anyone wants to take the thread on, please do, I am no longer running due to MS and making do with an Exercise bike and walking to try and keep fit.

Never thought I would be capable of Sub 85, but with some solid training and dedication it is possible, but I found that much harder than marathon trg, (but then couldn't convert the half in to a sub 3 mara, all the best to those trg to get there.

Hey RFJ, I do follow your blogs and hope that you are keeping as fit as the MS allows. I cannot imagine how hard this must be for you.

I am happy to take on the thread unless there are other offers.

My personal journey was 84:36 in 2010 and then I thought I would never repeat it. However I did then go 84:08, 83:59, 83:29 and 82:57 between Spring 2017 and Autumn 2019 with a long awaited sub 3 after the sub 83.

RFJ - I'm in the same position as Baz, watching what you're up to and really pulling for you.

Baz - thanks for stepping in. Are you currently nursing an injury?

WW, yeah small injury. It built for a while and is related to my old war wound and is glute/pelvis/hamstring related. I ended my streak after 364 days of running :-(. Close to a return now though and was going to do 3 miles tonight but Mrs Axe wanted me to go for a walk.
