I'm posting to see if there are any bloggers looking to run a sub-2:30 this year at SGM. I'm planning on hitting the first half in 1:15-1:16 and then negative splitting from there. Is there anyone that is looking for a similar time that would like to work together?

Trumpworld, also fake news, internet memes and liberal media.

I hardly believe what either the conservative or the liberal side says, you can listen to the news for 20 minutes and never hear one pertinent fact.

I like this company. It focuses on micro-lending while also focusing on the spiritual aspect. Help without Christ is no help at all.

You are doing very well. Your marathon time and relatively low mileage indicates real potential. Step one would be to gradually increase your mileage until you're in the 60-70 mph range. Focus on increasing your volume first. I'd also suggest running frequent races in the 5k to half marathon range.

I am four weeks post Boston. Had a great race but want to run faster. I logged 35-41 miles at my highest mileage. Trained between 8:15-8:30 pace. I would like to drop a good minute off my mile. Suggestions?

Sometimes, I do two workouts in one day, or on track, run multiple races in one day. It would be nice to be able to log these as separate workouts, especially for the races where each race would have a different times, positions, etc.

Alcohol is helping me deal with Trumpworld.

Love adding to a thread 7 years after the last comment!

Ben, I did not know that you picked up running post-college. Your story gives me a lot more hope for achieving my goal. Adding mileage at a comfortable rate is my main priority right now. I have read a bit of what you Ogden crew folks put on here. Thanks for sharing your experience!

I'm a little late to the game on this conversation. I normally don't check this part of the blog but I am glad that I did.
Donald I totally agree that your 3 hour marathon is doable. Key thing is staying consistent.
My first marathon attempt was straight awful. I thought I could run 3 hours off of 20 miles a week and my marathon ended up being 4 hours and 15 minutes. That taught me that this wasn't going to be given but earned. Over the years my main goal has been to gradually increase my mileage year by year and to do it slow and smart. From this dedication I have gone from a 4:15 marathon time to a 2:23 marathon.
So it's totally doable. Stay consistent, listen to the body, listen to Sasha he always has great sound advice, also enjoy the journey!
Also wanted to say I didnt start running consistently until 2006. Never ran in high school or college. Started running as a hobby to lose weight. I was 22 years old.

I appreciate the confidence. Nutrition and volume are two things I'm pretty focused on improving. The hard part is trying to juggle increased volume with sleep! My work situation is pretty inconvenient at the time, but it's no excuse. I am pretty sure I will start figuring out how to put a run during my lunch time at work. Idaho winters are pretty nasty (lots of ice lately), but I've just been going to the indoor track daily. My next scheduled marathon is Salt Lake City in April, and I hope to increase my comfortable weekly volume noticeably by then. I am glad that I randomly found this website. My running hobby so far has been alone with all my information gathered from book and article reading. This is really my first time getting to read detailed experiential wisdom from all the great runners here. I have traditionally showed up at races, tried my best, then left with my wife and kids. It is nice to actually communicate with experienced runners.
