Been thinking about the IM run, and in all honesty I dont expect to run the whole way, so it seems to make sense not to pretend in trainigng that I will, and that I should train to run-walk, which is a more realistic strategy. I'd lie to do somewhere round 4.30 max for the mara, but know I wont if the wheels come off and I end up having to walk for long periods.
But I'm curious as to what others do. I'm sure the quickies will run the whole way, but for those of us at the completer ratther than competer end of the equation, how many honestly think they will run the whole way, and if not, how many are training for a run walk strategy?
And for those that ARE planning a run walk, how do you train for it? Just on the long runs? What intervals are you planning and how did you come to decide them?
All thoughts / insight / comments that I should HTFU and train better so I can run the whole way much appreciated!
