Christopher. Edinborough is flat but it's a big city marathon and you can lose a couple of minutes at the start. There is also a mean wind along the North Sea that can take a lot out of you. Also a small part of it is run on a gravel track. Overall you won't gain much time if any. I would go for a smaller marathon to try and hit gfa and enjoy endinboro cos it's awesome. Abingdon is a pb definite!!!!!! But it's filling fast.
One advantage of being old (older) my gfa has been moved out to 3.20 next year. 3.17 at Brighton will hopefully translate to a sub 3.20 at Abingdon in October.
Yeah number swapping shouldn't be an issue.
I can't see the problem.
Headphones is another debate.
Legs too shredded to run. Just done a light weights session (not that I ever do a heavy one!!)
Do a few slow miles tomorrow. Maybe????
My friends doing Manchester this week so will wait and and see what she thinks of it. Fancy doing one In another country but it's sooooo bl**dy expensive.
