>Racing>Sub 3 based on my log
I'm running Steamtown on Oct 13. Based on my training log, what do you all think are my chances of running a sub 3? In 2011 I ran a 303 but my training paces were faster then what they are in 2013. But in 2013, I have ran more miles, more MP miles and did some doubles.
Do you all think I trained as needed for a sub 3?
With a 1:23 half PR in August and consistent mileage I would say you are good to go if you run a smart race. Good luck !
I agree with Flatfooter. Good luck.
+1. Should be good for <3. Only caveat ( just my opinion, I'm no expert), I'd try to get in another 20miler before the taper? Good luck, you've put in a lot of work and deserve it.
You can but I would not think about times. Steamtown is a race that can destroy goals; the downhill is punishing. Go for the typical 1/3 rule. The first 1/3 of the race should feel like you have done no work. The 2nd 1/3 should feel like you are working. The last 1/3 should be whatever you have to do to hang on.
My 2:30s friend has never broken 3:00 at Steamtown due to his hopes of running in the 2:20s.
