Obviously the simple answer is down to me but....
I've only been running seriously since the turn of the year. Since then I have completed two races, the Ashby 20 (2:40) and the Brighton Marathon (3:51).
I've got the bug and have started to put a proper schedule together to try and improve my marathon time. I had got it into my head that I could have possibly gone sub 3:30 last weekend at Brighton but I'd had a funny stomach leading up to the race, so didn't eat until mile 15. It went pear shaped from there.
I have joined a local running club which has made a difference and have felt a lot stronger than I did on Sunday on long training runs.
I have entered the Ultra Peaks 40 in August, but will just be happy to complete it.
My main focus is on improving my Marathon time (Next one entered is Brighton 2013).
How much could (or should) I improve in 12 months with the right training?. I'm planning on extra track speed sessions in the summer.
PB's to Date:
HM Best: 1:38
15 Mile Best: 1:55
20 Mile Best: 2:40
FM Best: 3:51
An open question I realise, but would appreciate some guidance and methods to help me improve.
