Training Tip Thursday
"A faster marathon in two weeks - Two weeks before your final long run, begin losing 10 excess pounds. Your final long run should take place two weeks before your target marathon, and be 20 miles in length or three hours (whichever is less). Enter the marathon fully rested, pain and injury free and pace correctly based upon an extrapolation from a recent 10k race or five mile time trial. Do all the above, and you can expect to improve your previous marathon time by 8 to 15 minutes."
