Last Marathon Training Long Run!

Last Marathon Training Long Run!

Speaking of marathon goal pacing, I think I’m going to aim for around an 8:55 minute/mile pace, which would have me finishing in 3:54. My main goal is I’d like to beat my Richmond Marathon time of 3:56:48 (a 9:01 average pace). I think I could probably do a bit faster per my training, and given that all my track buddies (who I did a bunch of long runs with, and who I train with on weekdays) just rocked Chicago Marathon with times ranging from 3:49 to 3:52, but MCM is hillier than Chicago, and I also really want to feel good and have a positive race experience. So – I’d rather be more conservative and aim for just under 3:55 vs. trying to be faster and totally crashing and feeling like crap. Anyway – we’ll see. But that’s the plan as of now.
