Great to see taper madness in full swing (weather, carbs, -ve splits, expo)...anyone would think that we're a week away from VLM. Lots of you have done some serious training, good for you....I firmly believe that you get out what you put in. My only bit of advice on pacing is that you should be able to exchange a few words with those you are running with up to about 16-17M, if you can't then you've gone off too fast so slow down a bit.
I'm planning to make the start line on 13/4...I wants to keep my 8 year London sequence going + raising some money of a very good cause. My training never got going this year and the last 4 weeks have been particularly intense with non running stuff (one day I may write a book about it)....but the short of it is that my run will probably be slow and somewhat painful, but in the grand scheme of things that isn't too important.
