My plan is to take a gel every 4 miles during the Edinburgh marathon.
The question is; should I stick to this during my training runs or take them further apart; say every 6 miles?
My theory is that when it comes to race day, my body gets a gel hit quicker than it expected and may be of benefit; or is this a load of rubbish and I should train as I plan to race?
If it helps; at the moment I'm guesstimating my finishing time to be around 4:35 which is roughly 10:30 pace.
Cheers in advance.
