My partner is hoping to sub 3 in his spring marathon. Me - I just want to cross the finish line!
His pb is 3.09. I am trying to convince him that he needs to slow his long runs down. He thinks that the recommended pace of the long runs in the P&D schedule are too slow.
Any other sub 3 ers on here that can advise? in the Autumn his long runs were run about 30secs slower than race pace (6.49) He was unable to complete the Chicago marathon due to a calf injury at mile 5 - so bang went his chance of a sub 3 in October.
