All the very best to everyone running today. 9st6
Yasunaga, "rising to 171 over the last 4 miles" would be ideal, it all depends on my hammies allowing the final push. My heart rate max is 191 and resting is somewhere in the 40s. 160bpm average is the best I have done for a well executed marathon.
I'm running to heart rate. Run first 2 miles less than 156, plus the "bonus" downhill third mile. Concentrate on keeping below 160bpm to 20 miles. Then, run as first as I can with out cramping up.
why is everything in italics?
TR, I think you should consider switching back to the shoes you know have been ok. I've made a late switch back to a pair of 500+ miles Omni. A newer pair of Hurricanes is giving my Mortens jip.
