I know there are lots of threads on here about 3 hour marathon times and training. I am planning on trying to run London in less than 3 hours next April. My last marathon was Berlin in 2011 where I knocked 10 mins off my time to get a new pb of 3:08.
My trainiing back then was runnng around 3 times a week. 1 small run of 6, a mid week 10 miler and a long run at the weekend which went up to 20 miles.
This year I have concentrated on my half marathon time and knocked 2 minutes off that and it now stands at 1:24. I also did more training and tried to run 4 times a week and did some interval training.
My current 5 k time is also 18:45.
I am going to start to train in November/December and try and run 5 times a week and build up the miles but not run myself into the ground. Do I need to be running a half in 1:22 to succeed at sub 3? Any other adive would be great as well.
