>Racing>Goal of Sub-3 Hour Marathon
*I need to find a spring marathon nearby. That's been a thought since it looks like I may not run Boston.
I'd appreciate if anyone could suggest a fast one neighboring Tennessee (feb-april).
This is the same workout on the same course (doing 3.2 mile laps around a lake where it's pretty flat, using my garmin to mark off 1000 meter reps and 2 minute recoveries).

Right on Hereford...
Do you use that function, and how well does it work?
Jim, please add me as a hopeful!
I have a good ways to go before sub-3 is realistic, but I'm tentatively setting Chicago 2009 as my goal race.

If you've been running for several years you might be able to jump right into some 16’s and 18’s with no problem. As far as cut back weeks I’d rather take them as needed rather schedule them. With your base you might have to take some risks if you want to be ready by December. What kind of mileage were you doing before last year’s Rocket City?

This is my second year. I do not see sub-3 happening this year, but I am going for it!
So you would say run 20's back-to-back?
Last year I averaged close to 60 mpw, top week of 67.
