Clearly this will come down to seconds, so my 3:42:33 will be the spot on winner.  But I do like the price is right methodology! 

Yeah, I felt like being 'that guy.'

Hopefully I get to give her the medal. Last year I got to do this for some BT'ers I'd met up with before the race.

My friend just ran a slightly more than 1:46 HM and gave it maybe 95% effort. She ran Chicago a little over a week later and did it in 3:38. You have more volume in the past year than she does by like 50%, but very similar volume in the couple of months preceding the race. Her age is 40 if that helps you compare a little more, too.

I just post this here, because I think that you can break that 3:40 based on the stuff I've seen from her and from your logs, but it's going to be psychological because of the treadmill stuff. You are clearly a way more experienced runner than I am, and I've only done a few HMs, but treadmill training just screws me up. I absolutely hate it, but consider it necessary for the winter portion of my training, having to do it immediately preceding a race would not be fun, especially using it for pace runs. That's the whole idea of a pace run, isn't it? get your body feeling the pace that it will be at during race?

Anyway, best of luck!

I had hoped to break 1:30 this year but now would be happy just to break 1:34. My question is in my limited time I have left do I concentrate on speed work or endurance?

I signed up for Ironman Frankfurt, next year July - and I am very excited about it. I originally planned to run my first Marathon in the middle of September, but am not sure if this is wise.

After the Marine Corps Marathon, I started developing left lower/lateral leg pain late in my marathon training and pushed through it.

I am running Boston in April and Ironman Lake Placid is in July. I have been told that it is ambitious to think about doing an IM so close to a marathon due to the recovery time. Any suggestions?

A few factors are at the basis of increasing running speed. In my experience these factors are: variety, “pain,” time and injury prevention.

Many people in the triathlon world think they need to just emulate Ian Thorpe to have a faster time, or have a similar stroke to Michael Phelps to cruise through the swim. Unfortunately...
