Marathon Training and Discussions


Just signed up for my first Marathon. Flying Pig - 5/5/13 (Read 373 times)

    Great race and great report, Nathan.  I've really enjoyed watching your progress since you've been on the site--I think you have a lot, lot more potential than you give yourself credit for.  You raced extremely well for your first marathon--slight negative split and nothing left at the end.


    Enjoy your rest week--you earned it.


    Thought I would update this with my results.  Ended up with an official time of 3:48:09.  Had a tiny 59 second negative split.


    Here's my race report.  It's a novel.


    "When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem."
