Have been considering this for a while now. If you're running a half in the next couple of weeks in your FLM build-up, what would your race strategy be?
Is it better to go at your hoped-for Marathon pace and judge by your condition at the end as to whether it is realistic/optimistic/pessimistic?
OR go full on for the half-marathon PB, and then assess your potential marathon pace using the various pace-judging charts around and/or the Horwill +16secs per mile strategy?
I'm undecided as I have also read it could take too much out of you to do a full half-marathon pB attempt this close to the marathon particularly considering that you may have v.long steadies planned for the weeks before and after the half.
