Follow BellyBoyBarnes as he embarks on his sub-3:00 FLM campaign (Mentor: Steve Smythe)
Introducing the first member of our Lucozade Sport Super Six… Nigel (aka BellyBoyBarnes).
Nigel’s goal is to run sub-3:00. He’s already clocked 3:02 and 3:04 (twice) in the past, but despite training harder and harder, he’s not yet broken the elusive three-hour barrier.
Nigel will be using our sub-3:00 Garmin-ready schedule (devised by former London Marathon winner Mike Gratton) as a basis for his training and will be mentored by Steve Smythe directly on this thread (starting January 5). He’ll be posting his training progress on a regular basis, and feedback the fuel and hydration advice given to him by the team at Lucozade Sport so make sure you check back regularly to find out how he gets on.You can read more about Nigel’s running background and goals by clicking on the article link at the top of the thread.
Good luck Nigel!
The very best of luck to you Nigel!As a former Super Six (Great North Run 2008) I know first hand how great the help and support of the Lucozade/RW team are. Together with Steve and Liz you have the best people to help you achieve your goal. I will be following your progress closely as I share your goal - although I will hopefully achieve mine a week earlier at the Lochaber Marathon.
Congrats and once again - all the best.
Hooray! Go BellyBoy!

thank for your support
i believe that we are following the mike gratton sub 3 hour schedule
at the moment im doing very little in milage i run the new york marathon and pick up an injury
at one stage this year i was running 100 mile a week but ive been told to concentrate more on my speed rather than distance
im on 1:23 for the half marathon ive been told i need 1:21 which would make things a lot easier
i done edinbough 2008 it gets very windy on the beach frount finished with 3:04
all the best with your training thank
It's all go !
I have checked the schedule and it looks that you are going to half your mileage, should be interesting for you
yes the milage is very interesting what it means is that i will have more rest
my speed is a problem at the moment im on 39.30 for 10 k ive got 2 bring that down to 37.30
