It looks like you're new here. Sign in or register to get started.
After a bit of uncertainty of late re toeing the start line, having struggled to get used to running without orthotics, I'm running relatively comfortably again and whilst I haven't done anywhere near the amount of training I'd have liked to have done I'm now looking forward to the 28th. If it had been any other marathon/event I'd give it a miss!!
Re the sub 3 breakdown, based on past experiences I'd say that is pretty much spot on as averages for each of those sections although, of course, the mile splits within those sections will vary (by as much as 2 minutes I'd say). When going for it in the past I'd always have set target time for a few parts of the course
1-5 8:106-13 7:2014-22 7:50 23-24 11:1025-26.2 7:45
1-5 7:306-13 6:5014-22 7:20 23-24 10:2025-26.2 7:15

Good to hear from you Brer. 58 marathons in the bag this year already!!! TRex you have competition for the forum's most hard core member this year!
First week of taper done which almost ended in disaster when I tripped up some steps about 2 mins from finishing this morning's 7 miler. Months of training flashed before my eyes but think all intact despite not bouncing so well these days. That's pretty much my running done till next weekend for me - lightweight I know! Hoping to dip under 3.40 but the legs aren't getting any younger.
Good luck TR and Brer with your final LONG runs this weekend. Stay healthy all.
