Hi, does anyone know what the options are for watching live coverage of this race are? Ideally, would like to watch the BBC stream on the internet but not sure if this is available outside UK. Any info greatly appreciated.
There is a pub called the Watling just by Mansion House tube.
It was a perfect base for watching the women's marathon. It is less than a min walk from seeing runners head down Cheapside and then return past Mansion House 15 mins later; time for a quick pint and then repeat * 4 and then head back to pub to watch the finish
I would do long runs at 8:15 ish and do the last 3 miles at 7:30 ish. This would bring my average pace a few secs above my target marathon pace of 8 min miles.
For long runs over 20 miles would feel v exhausted at end - 8/10.
When I ran London last month was able to grind out pretty even 8 min miles with a lot of concentration and some pain for last hour but felt no more exhausted than after long runs. Also, this was tempered by hitting my target of sub 3:30 with 30s to spare
