I'm after a bit of advice from the more experienced marathon ruinners. I'm running a pancake flat marathon this Sunday and i'm still unsure of what finishing time I should be aiming for. I know this will be different in each person but i'm trying to get a rough idea from people with similar times/PB's in other races.
A bit of recent training history. I've been running 40-50 mpw since January and have a pretty decent base from 2000 miles ran last year. I've recently raced a half marathon in 1:26 and a 10k in 38.59. I've only ever run 2 marathons and they were 2 years ago. 3.54 and 3.52 but I was very new to running.
My plan has been to aim for 3.10 but i've had a few people saying to aim for 3 hours. I don't have a lot of experience at the distance so i'm hoping for some advice. The big question is what would you do/aim for?
