I did the Rome Marathon last March, my first ever marathon and i did it in 4.31 following a Garmin training plan. i sort of just aimed to enjoy it and get round without huting myself.
I've just registered to do it again next March and i could really do with some realistic and experienced advice on choosing a Garmin training plan from the RW site. I have been consistantly running through the year but not entering many races. i did the Lake Coniston marathon in July in 4.50 but that was quite hilly and in truth i had not trained properly for it.
If i stick to a training plan including the hill work and speed work, would it be achieveable to pick a 3.45 training plan? I am currently doing about 28 - 30 miles a week. I know i can get round now, so this time i really want to get faster, which will involve weight loss and speed work.
