A marathon can be broken down into 2 halves, the first 20 miles and the last six and a bit and the effort required to complete both halves is about the same mentaly and physically
I have said before to several people that if you start off feeling comfortable you are running too fast...... start at 10 1/2's and stick to them for as long as you can at least I would say to half way... then run to feel, if you are still comfortable at 13 miles then you are as well trained as you expected, if you still feel comfortable at 20 then you are entering into what is in fact the second half of your race
Sunday put your feet up, insist on being waited on hand and foot ....,,,,, drink steadily, sipping bits all day.... water or energy drink. eat rest try and sleep
you will be better getting an early night on the saturday as you probably wont sleep that well on the sunday
Go out and smash it young lady......enjoy the day, bask in your achievement afterwards
Any last minute questions I will pop in and check..
