I think I barely crossed this benchmark over the summer - 31:5x split in a half less than 2 weeks shy of turning 32. Strangely enough the race had a clock at the 10k mark but no timing mat so it's...

Damn that sucks, but that seems on par with 75-80% of the other guys I know that ran on Monday. I missed my PR by 2 minutes (and goal time by 3-4) after cramping on the downhill right after...

Nice final few sessions before your race.

I think I agree with this assessment. It's probably more fair to come up with percentage instead of +10 min in that formula. Looking at the past few world record holders I get around HM*2.1
