Carter sounds like great course !
Ali - the 5k improvement indicates you do have a bit more speed in the legs compared to pre-Ness .... comes down endurance and that last 6 miles I guess. Similar to Nell I would target 3:55 - if ur feeling relatively strong at 20 mls then bring it home, if the wheels start to come off a bit hopefully you can hang on and nail a 4hr finish
Nell - you're flying/looking very strong for Edinburgh - looking forward to reading the PB report already!
Got a 13 miler in @ 9mml pace on Sun morning. Training in earnest for Berlin starts next week - fitting it all in will be a challenge as we recently bought a new (old) house which we are renovating & hoping that it will be habitable and ready to move in to by the end of June! Every evening of late I seem to have a meeting with a builder, plumber, spark etc which is impacting running time grrrr!
