Follow the progress of just back from a run, our sub-3:00 hopeful, as she receives expert advice from mentor Paul Evans
Christina already holds the Guinness World Record for Fastest Marathon Dressed as a Super Heroine (3:13) but is now looking to build on the fitness she’s acquired from recently completing Ironman UK to achieve a sub-3:00 marathon time.
Christina will be using our sub-3:00 Garmin-ready schedule (devised by former London Marathon winner Mike Gratton) as a basis for her training and will be mentored by Paul Evans directly on this thread (starting January 4). She’ll be posting her training progress and be receiving fuel and hydration advice directly from the Lucozade Sport sports scientists live on this thread so make sure you check back regularly to find out how she gets on.You can read more about Christina’s running background and goals by clicking on the article link at the top of the thread.
Good luck Christina!
Good luck JBFAR. Looking forward to watching you get your sub3. No funny outfits this year!
The schedule looks excellent.
I'm not a fan of the term slow pace, it's basically just part of the easy zone. I don't see any point in distinguishing between the two. They should both be done on how you feel on the day.
A good mix of paces, and peaking at about 60m/week. The steady and brisk (threshold) runs are key. I think with a bit of luck you will smash the 3hr mark.
Good luck, I will monitor your progress with much interest.
ps. It's good to see a lady tackle this, it must be the equivalent of 2:45maybe for a man.
JBFAR, go girl! good luck, don't forget to drop in to sub 3 thread every so often!
Just dropping by.
Have you watched the video yet?
Wayhey the threads are up at last!
Good luck Christina, have a fab and scarily quick 'journey'
JBFAR - I think it was you who WALZTED past me in FLM 2008 when you were dressed as Supergirl. Disheartening for me, but fantastic for you as you were running into the record books.
Good luck for the next 4 months and here's looking forward to April 25th 2010
I hope you are not slipping around to much in the snow, it might be worth trying to find some grass or trails this weekend, as the forecast is not great for the rest of the weekend, keep me posted !

Delighted to be sharing the Super Six journey with you!
I hope you've looked at Christinas schedule KK, you wouldn't go far wrong if you followed it, assuming you are back running at the moment.
*knocks on the door*
Is it working now?
Wow, unbroken thread .
right JBFAR there's alot of catching up to do.
1. Running history

3. training programme for Supergirl exploits last year, weekly mileage etc.
4. Inside leg measurement /shoe size /Gloves and hat girl or left exposed to the elements and freeze
