When you receive your details through for ADSC it should also include a rail warrant and schedules of trains departing from your station and arriving at lichfield. It will give you all the alternate options also so you can see when they arrive etc. and also when to change trains.

I would do with whatever your comfortable with. If you watch the olympics over a similiar distance the runners keep up a good pace with a sprint finish. I would assume they condition their bodies to do this. As we aren't professional athletes maybe best to stick with however you run.
