I am in training for the Brighton Marathon and have the Bramley 20 mile race in February and the Finchley 20 in March (4 weeks before the race). I would be grateful for any advice on how to use these. I ran the Windsor half marathon at 6:46 pace or 1hour:29mins which would suggest I could do something like 7:02 marathon pace or 3hours 4 minutes. I was thinking of using the first to see if I can sustain this pace for 20 miles and the second to see if I can go one further and run 3 hour pace. Is there a risk of burning out though if I run both these at Marathon pace?
Should I be treating them as just long slow runs or do I push myself?
