I'm in exactly the same camp as 2-wheels. It will be very interesting which of the three of us is fastest on the day. I want a 3:40 but will be happy with a sub 4 my best to date is 4:35.
I predict gale force winds with lashing rain. Only because thats what it's been like 3 out of the 4 last halfs that Stevenage ran. The last on I managed a 1:49, I was hitting more or less bang on 8:00/mile up to mile 10, then I and about 5 of the guys around me all lost pace for some reason (maybe the incline).
The fact remains train too hard and you will burn out before the start line, the problem is you won't know you're burned out until you hit that halfway mark and everything just goes away from you. It's not a matter of training to 3:15 paces and see how it goes. It just doesn't work like that.
I predict Basher gets another sub 5:00.
