Great race reports I enjoyed reading them all an NN like everyone its down to training and mental toughness. I know that doing the long run on tired legs and running the last 6 miles at MP helps me, I also think doing these on your own also helps. This year at VLM not having a goal and any pressure also helped not really looking at the Garmin and not wearing a HR monitor. If you run your long runs slow and on fresh legs after a days rest how can you up the pace to run the full marathon at pace? run up to 8 to 10 miles the day before then do your long run easy but up the pace in the last few miles, start with a couple of miles and build that up to 6 to 8 miles. Worth a try next time round
