Not on strava...no GPS watch! Might relent and finally buy one though.
Wait...have you joined a club now?
......this spring my running club friends reckoned 1’22 for a sub 3, but I think in the right conditions my 1’24 form would get me close.
Ironically a month after the London marathon where heat made going for sub 3 a non starter I ran sub 1’24 in a half....
As things stand I am going to work on my shorter race distances starting with mile pace and revisit the marathon in either late 2019 or spring 2020 hopefully a couple more kg lighter and with a better base speed.
Good luck and keep me posted. Are you on Strava or similar?
Thanks for your insight.
Whilst I will follow the schedule, I wont be doing so to the letter and I do feel some sharper sessions are in order as I dont want to not run any faster than HM pace.
I like the idea of a long run off the back of a parkrun. That will also force me to train at a time of day when the race is. Currently I either run at the crack of dawn or lunchtime.
I did wonder about the 1.25 target for the HM as that doesn't give a lot of room for error in the full.
Anyway, I think the first challange is making the start line without breaking down injured!
