Eat normally with less protein and more carb in the meal the night before. Normal size portion. Day of the race couple of porridge pots, a banana and a croissant about 3 hours before.

TD, pref 1.29 at half distance. 1.28 would put me on for 2.55 if I go by my slight 30-60 second negative split aspirations, and 2.55/2.56 is beyond what I believe in myself. The 6.45 average mile is 2.58.4X which I just about believe I can attempt. I guess I'll keep an eye on HR, 6.51 still scrapes me in and that's more like 4.25 per K. If I'm in the 160s at half distance I will have to back off.

More than happy to go off 4.15 per km and try to hold that all the way (gulp) easier said than done! Who knows could be a scorcher then a 3.15 will be a grand effort.

If on the off chance i am exceeding expectations and still with you when we reach the woods of death you have my permission to nag/bully me to the end

Peeps there's no value in doing any more proper training now. Just alternate easy runs with a steady run with some of it at marathon pace. You are trained. De-fatigue-ing ourselves should be the priority and will give us the best chance at producing our best on the day. Cut that mileage back!

TP have a break, have a kit kat. Get applying ibuprofen gel 3 times a day. Regular icing, get in the horizontal as much as possible. stay off yer feet love, no heavy lifting or standing on yer tip toes

2 runs for me today, 1 progressive 4.5 miles starting in the high 7s and ending up in the low 6s. Then a 5 mile run home from work up a big long 2 mile hill that just gets steeper Then stumbling down the other side.
