I'm going to be doing my first full marathon in a little over 2months from now. I have a 5k PR of 18:21, consistently in the 18:36 range, also did my first half marathon back in Apr in 1:26:5x.. After the half I figure I could do decent in a full.. So I figured I'd give it a whirl. Which leads me to these questions: I need a 3:10 marathon to BQ, am i capable of doing that? Been running 50-55mpw been doing some more long runs 15,17, gonna make sure i get a few 20's in before the marathon of course but i still have time..
Any input on this ? Mc Millan says I should be able to run a 3:02:53 but I'd like to be a little conservative in my first marathon.. Would like to think I could be in the 3:06-3:10 range dependin on weather.. Was actually hoping to BQ first race, run Boston, and be done w/ the whole marathon thing. Any help appreciated. Thanks!
