I'm researching alternatives to the official race buses back to the city. Do you think it will be difficult to get a taxi? From what I gather online it looks like catching the train from Musselburgh wouldn't be too bad an option, but I can't find out if anyone actually has any experience with this.
Also, is anyone else here doing their long runs way slower than expected MP? I run about 50 seconds per kilometer slower to keep my heart rate in fat-burning zone, which I read is sensible but now I'm thinking maybe I should practice longer MP runs?
In all my 10k and half marathon races I have been running comfortably at what I would have regarded an insanely fast pace in a training run. Apparently I react strongly to andrenaline or mental pressure?
I'm signed up for Edinburgh as well, and it will be my first full. I know some say that you shouldn't have a time goal for your first, but I find it both difficult and boring not to... Ideally I'd like to make sub 4 (half PB from September is 1.50.11). Signed up for RW forum today, and will be exited to follow it as training progresses
