Thanks, smashed out a great interval session last night with a lower heart rate than normal, I’m thinking at this stage just go with the plan and on Sunday have the final 32km long run before tapering and see what happens.
Also just purchased a new pair of racing shoes (Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT%) how would you wear then in because you don’t want to do many km in them because they aren’t build for many kms? Thinking of using them for a marathon in less than 3 weeks.
Thanks, Matt I have been using the marathon level 3 plans for the past 12 months and have been mostly successful in achieving the long run workout (occasionally not achieving a single long run which I could explain). I have a fueling plan which is taking in about 60g of carbohydrates per hour by gels, around 400 ml of water and having a piece of toast with peanut butter prior to the run. This has been the method that I have used for running the marathon with success. So yes this is something new for me.
