Wow Emmy ... 112 marathons! Think we (I) need to know how you've fit these in, how many per year, which ones etc. Incredible achievement! BOOM!
I thought Paris 2016 being my 10th and this weekends 100th parkrun was an achievement but 112 marathons (and still counting) is truly remarkable.
It's been in just over 3 years (my100th was within 3 years of my first). I've done a lot of doubles/triples and a few quads. I'm in awe of anyone who does a marathon
Need 3:10, current pb 3:12. what course mainland Europe or Uk would be a flat PB opportunity?
thought I'd ask as know there is lots off knowledge /experiences on this forum
2016 planning on running lisbon in Oct which is a little hilly so I imagine not 3:10 potential.
Hiya AP - there's a few things to look at for a good course. It also depends what you're looking for for the course. Some ideas:
- Malta - a few bumps but known for its net downhill. Very fast course.
- Any dutch marathon! You'll get a lot of flat and a sharp field. Rotterdam is known for being fast but I didnt enjoy it *that* much but there are some smaller ones here that are super fast (Spijkenisse in December has a lot of sub 3 finishes and is a sharp quick field).
- Koln marathon (Germany). Super flat, sharp field of runners so will help pace you.
