Tiberius Marathon Countdown

Apologies for lack of posts thus far this year , actually taking some days in lieu from work so access to internet involves coming to the gym and using the wifi network here, sure could do a blackberry but it is quicker to drive here
Anyway Tiberius Marathon is only a couple days away Thursday morning locally and feeling good, have been running most days final little 7 km run this morning at about 5:40 pace HR low 130's, legs feeling good
Of course this all points to the obvious that the wheels will fall off the little red cart the moment the marathon starts, have not been able to follow a specific program so have no time expectations and mainly looking to enjoying myself.
Have still not figured out whether to Galloway Method , run 9 walk 1. I know never try anything you have not done .... yada yada yada . But the evidence in many places have had skeptics and procrastinators with having never done this method having great success BUT then again the is the other side of the coin and the queston of Gallorunning v running
Hope to do one more post if i can pre marathon
If not look for details Thursday 4th afternoon
Cheers
Mal

Good Luck on the marathon!

As for whether to Galloize your marathon...
...have not been able to follow a specific program so have no time expectations and mainly looking to enjoying myself.

If this is your goal, then you should Run walk 9/1. And you should do it from the start. If you just start with all running and you run out of steam, then it's not going to be pleasant for you near the finish. BUT, if you start off with a Run/Walk 9/1 then you will have a better chance of enjoying the later miles.

My current PR time was achieved by starting out with a run/walk of 9/1. I did this for the first 3 miles and then found my grove and boom... I ran the last 22+ miles at an even pace.

What is your PR at rest and how long does it take it to come down from 130?
