BARCELONA MARATHON TARGET: UNDER 4 HOURS?

Friends,

I am on my 4th week out of 16 to prepare my first marathon and first 2011 target....target, hopefully below 4 hours...but, after running yesterday 22 Kms...it looks very difficult to achieve it!

I attach below my settings to go thru my 16 weeks training program by (http://www.runnersworld.com/)

TRAINING: SMART COACH
Your current race time is: 0:43:00 for a 10 K
Your distance training goal is: Marathon
You currently train: 33 - 40 km/week
How hard you want to train: Hard
Your long-run day: Sunday
Your training program Starts: Monday, 11/15/2010and Ends: Sunday, 3/6/2011
Length of your training schedule: 16 weeks
Marathon Race Day
Marathon @4:41 Time: 3:18:11

I will not deny, as is going to be a very tough training, but, that is what I am going to try to enjoy at maximum level!

Btw, just to inform you that we are 22 Barcelona Dragons members of our new Triathlon Club created 3 weeks ago...I believe is a good start! Expatriates in Barcelona are more than welcome to join our international club!! (http://www.bcndragons.com/) or contact directly via e-mail: bcndragons@gmail.com

Cheers!

  3. Hi Xavi,

    I think you'll have no problems going sub four! What's the course like?

  4. Probably the race course is full of climb & descente, but if you train like you've written you'll achieve your goal. I've finished my first marathon in 3:55!!
