I've been following this thread from the beginning. After reading Watchero's analysis here is my theory: Amy really thinks she did it.
Her BF knew she was behind, fibbed on some numbers and three some confetti on her at the end. It was a lie he got caught on and now can't go back on.
I think Amy knew she was lying and worked with Dave to make up the story about the fake fast 5k/10k runs. She knew she was behind on the world record pace from day 1.
Also, I just realized that if you take Amy Hughes claim of 62.1 miles covered in day 1 and divide it by the 18 hours she says she ran on the day, you get an average speed of 3.45 mph which is the same as that of each of the 12-hour video average speeds for Sept. 6th and Sept. 7th. I think this lends further support that Amy Hughes was really only averaging 3.45 mph overall and that my 3.61 mph calculation is a bit on the high side due to skewing from the short video speeds.
