Oops, couldn't do the maths properly could I - yep, 4 x 45 mins recovery should be OK. But as you say, not pleasant in the dark hours.

I need to do a 24 hour relay event at some point, wonder if I could persuade SWMBO and eldest speedster son...

(Goes away to formulate a cunning plan)

Good luck Oscar and thanks for the wishes foljs.

Target is at a minimum sub-3:30 but by how much I genuinely don't know. Training gone well and I'm feeling good but know I'm not in PB shape. Will do my usual run to heart rate for first 13.1 and take it from there.... :-)
