Hi AR - firstly great time - well done.
Also thanks for posting all this - great read and knowledge pot.
Reading the history it is interesting to me that you started running in Jan 2012 but by April 2012 you could already run a 1:28 HM and then a 3:02 marathon by June. WOW!
That suggests a lot of natural ability as well as lots of hard training obviously but a lot of people would not hit those times even with hard training over such a short time period.
So I was interested in how good a runner you were when you were at school which you don't mention in your life story. Best in year? Any timed races etc
No - its a 5 second walk to work (i.e. home) where I sit down, and get up a few times to set up some machinery. That is a lot more active than it used to be, where it was desk bound or long car journeys, hotels, airports, hotel bars and restaurants Mon to Fri.
wow what a fantastic read.. well done AR on a great race time..Im trying to chase my first sub 3 marathon in edinburgh this year but i fear i have not had the commitment or more like had far to many of lifes commitments to dedicate so much time to my running..I was on course to do edinburgh last year in 3:04 but at mile 19, cramps set in and i just couldnt shake them, (due to an extremely hot day 26 deg) I know i am capable of a sub 3 and even with the correct dedication a sub 2:50. would love to find someone to train with that could push me to the max. Depends on my edinburgh run ill be running the kent coastal in september and i might copy your training plan and see how i fair...
The Kent Coastal ain't exactly a fast course....
I have heard it is quite a undulating course which suits me..i am not that keen on flat roads. part of the reason i dislike the back section of edinburgh as it heads out to the middle of nowhere and back...
