Malcs Something similar to Ady's plan should be doable. I was thinking more of first 5 at 8:30, second 5 at 8:15, third 5 at 7:45-7:50 then back to 8:15 for final 5 and any pace for another 2. Think it is best not to be going too hard at this stage of training too late on run and the theory is that how you feel between 15 and 20 on this run is partially preparing you for how you are feeling after 20 in the marathon, and that harder 5 before the 15 does that to a certain extent and the last five you are just trying to grind out a controlled pace - albeit hopefully you will be going faster at that stage in Paris. nb track group doing 800s tomorrow at the Palace
KR I would suggest might be best to the second lap as race so you are not too tired when you do race and then the third lap slower again - this way simulates maintaining a pace (albeit slower) while you are already tired and makes it more similar to last few miles to marathon.
Roger - another excellent run at weekend and it's encouraging that you are recovering well
Rob - well done on your control at 20 mile
CC2 well done on all those miles. Home countries international is usually quite a high standard race. last year only 19 did women's race and Combined Servives runners were at back 4 minutes after winner on 7200m course.
Think this year they are making it much bigger and have plans to make it a mini world champs as no world champs this year
