I am about to commit heresy!!! I know that they say you should not do things/wear things/etc in a race that you have not trained with --- BUT for my HM on Sunday, I am going to abandon my phone which I have been using to beep 60/30 intervals to me on my long runs - and I am going to run NAKED!! I tried it once over 5 k this week as I have been tapering - I just run for as long as I feel like it (hills, etc) and then walk for 60 paces ( which I roughly count as I walk) . 60 paces equates to around 30 seconds at walking pace for me - and I generally run for around 150 to 200 yards . It is really a bit "fartlek-y", where you run for differing times at different paces, including walking. All in all, it will be very similar to my Galloway run/walk training - but I think it may be just a little more "responsive" to the conditions on the day . The HM will be run at a parkrun site on a narrowish concrete path - with around 150 other runners - I know what I can and can't do, so I will be going out VERY slowly for the first 5k or so . I was starting to dread it last week - but now , with my new walking "style" and my "fartlekking", I am looking forward to it
