Hope all is good, im new to the forum so hope you can help,
Currently doing a 16 week training program for the london marathon ( to complete in sub 4 hopefully) and in week 7 completed my first 13 miler of the year last weekend.
This is my first marathon and ive got no experience of road running competions only tough guy back in 2010. Therefore would really like to get in a few taster events but should i run them as a race or as a training long run? as ive recently been told to start slowing my long runs down to about a 9:40-10m/mile pace currently running them at av 9:22.
Below are the week numbers and long runs i have left.
wk 7 14 miles
wk8 16 miles
wk9 18 miles
wk 10 10 miles
wk 11 20 miles
wk 12 10 miles
wk 13 22 miles
wk 14 12 mies
wk 15 8 miles
wk 16 VLM
Any advice/suggestions would be great
