10 miles this morning at close to proposed marathon pace. Felt fairly good but no where near easy or totally relaxed yet at this pace. 136 miles for the month. Off to Yorkshire tomorrow, back Tuesday afternoon so may have to move/drop some of my runs this week.
I am still just getting to grips with this heart rate stuff and not trusting my monitor totally. However I think the LSRs are going well; I don't think I could go much slower and won't now that I'm getting closer to race day. Afterwards when I go back into base training mode I will start from scratch again and see how it goes.
Susan, thanks for your positive comments, they really help. I put my chances of going sub 4 in April at about 40/60 but with a few more positive vibes who knows. Soon you can start thinking of your next marathon - that will be something!
