Topic - How long does the benefit of altitude take to wear off?

Brooess - on 14 Aug 2013
I was above 3500m for 3 days over the weekend - in Switzerland - up around the Jungfrau/Monch etc.
I've a 10k run on Saturday in London which I entered partly in the hope of a residual effect of being at altitude giving me an advantage.

We came back down on Monday afternoon and I've obviously re-acclimatised to sea level but based on your experience of being at altitude, is there likely to be much of an effect on Saturday or is it too long since I came down?
