I agree that even 1.30 HM isn't going to give me a chance at 3.10 marathon. I'm running a half in Jan and probably need to see sub 1.27 to stand a chance. From that point I do have 4 months to consiladate my endurance.
Also-run good advice about not puishing myslef to hard in training I can be guilty of that. Im going to take my garmin off and just try and push my mileage up starting next monday.
Also if I dont make 3.10 its not the end of the world I'm not too hung up on that anyway. Jan 2011 I weighed 16'10 and now 13'2 and hoping to be around 12'7 so the main thing is I'm a healthly weight, look good and have increased my confidence. I would be disappointed with higher than 3.30 if I run injury free though!
High just looking for some information if thats ok.
My pipe dream is todo Edinburgh marathon (25/5/13) faster than 3.10 to qualify for London. Its probably beyond my reach but I'd be happy with 3.30. I previously done a marathon but under trained and finished in 4h17m.
I was wondering of you who have marathons pbs of 3-3.20 what are you respective half marathon PB's. I started running again 9.5 weeks ago and knocked out a 1h35m HM in training at the weekend but am hoping the 7 months training and weight loss can push me towards my goal.
I'm running Helsby (Essars 4 villages) HM in Jan which i'll use to decide a target.I know there's a calculator but it seems to predict wayyyyy to quick, I wanted to get real life examples please.
Thanks in advance
P.S Any marathon training tips as always will go down well)
