Went and watched more tired than running it. My super speedy niece was 6th in london and 19th overall in mini marathon so proud. Really intresting to see how the numbers built as time went so many sub 3!!!!!!!!
Shedboy agree with all said. Running slower is going to help based on my experience I would try 8/2 2 minutes is long enough to recover HR but not to long to allow things to start seizing up or the adrenaline to stop. Biggest issue may be space to walk at the start so maybe run for furst hour slowly
But they feel like it, It was proper walking not power walking the key for me was getting my heart rate back to normal then it felt like starting a run again. Sure its different for all but the first hour about 5,5 miles just felt so easy I almost felt like it was cheating however Im also aware that because sub 5 hours x 7 was my number 1 target it should have felt easy and I had my usual 4 hours to do the rest April 17th will be the real test
