My long sunday run training times suggest a 4.20-30 time, this is when running jaded as im on a low carb diet to lose weight and have lost 3 stone, so each sunday run im shattered before I start and not fuelled up. Carrying a heavy waist bag with gels water, phone, money, keys etc and in loads of clothing as its been freezing.
Is it ambitious to think I may do a sub 4 hour run if it all clicks, a weeks rest, proper fulled up and no heavy water belt etc and of course light clothing and a vest.
Also this means ive rarely done a sunday run at marathon pace, the crowd, 4 gels, usually have just 2, adrenaline etc, all will help.
