New York 2016

i don't think there is a better last drag of any race than the last 4 miles of London. Boston is the special one - the grandaddy of all marafuns, London for atmosphere on the day is more or less on a par. Tokyo and Berlin not quite as good but still amazing races. Can't comment about the other two WMMs but hoping NY is same sort of atmosphere as London.

I've heard it has some quiet sections plus we know it's a tougher course. I'd love to run close to 3 hours over there but I know i'll have to work very hard in the summer and make a noticeable improvement. Then still have a very good race execution on the day. There's got to be at least 5 minutes (if not more) for course difficulty so a 3.05 at NY is comparable to 3.00 in London.

Hi TBO2 ..... good job at London. Hope you're back in the hat today. It was perfect running conditions compared to Paris. Paris was amazing though and a lot of fun .... and a very scenic course. That was my 3rd Paris and 3rd London. I'm back for London next year and skipping Paris probably until 2018. I'll still remain here on this thread as this is my "home" on RW

Bedders, great news the misses is in for NY! I'd love it if mine ran it as well .... she's done a few halves but is pretty adamant she won't do a full.

Btw nice sub3 action at That London last week .... I also snagged my second "career" sub3 and I was greatly helped by the incredible atmosphere and perfect running conditions. Planning to work hard at my training over the summer so I can run well in NY as well.

Great job Yermaj on yesterday's ultra x x .....I love that you learned yesterday that ultras are stupid. Marathons ain't exactly clever either.

Good mention for the 18 week 55-70 plan ES & Tom13. That is a plan that works for a lot of people. My plan is kind of home made but it sort of ticks most of the boxes in that plan in terms of frequency, paces and mileage .... although I tend to lean more towards the 20 milers and sacrifice the odd hard run from it. btw ES that New York time you got is comparable to sub2.50 at VLM. You made a decent improvement in one campaign which I am envious of. I'm at NY later this year and realize that I need to work hard to produce a good run there, it's a more challenging course than VLM (I've heard). May tap you up for some info later in the year.

.....what I mean is the fact that you can run 2.52 of really low volume ..... If you could run more frequently with structured marathon specific training ..... i'm sure you would make huge gains .... but you'd have to build that mileage over a couple of years .... ramping up too quickly might injure yourself.
