My best time so far is 3:42, but that was done off about 15 weeks training. I currently have acrocked knee, but I know I've got a place next year which hopefully will motivate me not only to get sub 3:30, but sub 3:15.

Any other takers?

I'm up for this Bear

I was hoping for sub 3:30 this year but got injured - so deferral and all means I'm in too.

Anyone else?

Get Meldy chasing you with her yukka and I'm sure you'll manage sub 2:15, never mind 3:15!

Didn't think Meldy could run that fast!

Assuming I get in via the ballot or a club place you can count me in.

Hoped for sub 3:30 this year, got too hot and finished in 3:32:05.

3:15 is my goal for next year either at London, Abingdon or New Forest.

If I get a place I may just join you - I have 2 more marathons this year and hope to have ran 3:30 by the end of the year (done London in 3:44)

Would love to get 3:15 next year

Well I was on this thread for 2005 but did not have a good race, so, if I get in this will be the target again for next year.

I'll probably be using the Mike Gratton plan that was successful for many of my contempories this year.

I ran 3:27 this year at London and have a GFA place next year so I'll join you.

If im still running then this would have to be the target after failing big time over the last 2 years.

Will keep in touch

Good luck everyone.

ive put myself down for a sub 3.30 next year but in a perfect world i want a sub 3.15.

i did my first marathon this year in 3.40 and i realised that i didnt do enough 20 milers in my training, therefore i struggled between 23 and 25, does that sound right? any advice please.

I'm well up for it!

I missed out narrowly (on 3.15) at FLM '05 by 2 mins 47seconds. Absolutely gutted to be honest. I know where I went wrong with my trg (only started last August) so this will be rectified for '06 (Secretly i will be aiming for sub 3hrs but dont tell anyone).
Just in case anyone is interested I followed the MyAsics sub 3.30 trg plan as this was my original goal. I only changed my goal to 3.15 as i got on so well in the trg.

So what's everyone planning over the summer in terms of mileage?

Hi all, just joining in too – nice to see a few familiar names. Aim to put my DNF at this year’s race (owing to catching a very heavy cold 48 hours before, which annoyingly is still hanging around!) and get a sub-3:15 in the bag at Berlin on 25 September. Hopefully, I'll then have a championship place for FLM ‘06.

Aiming to peak at about 60 mpw, which is nearly a 40% increase on my maximum weekly mileage to date, with some cycling and swimming thrown in.
