I think if you survive that program from now until May, you’ll break 3 hours or be close.

I’ll disagree with this statement. I don’t see how adding 5 mpw (and dropping his pace by :15 seconds/mile) from his previous marathon build-up is going to allow him to drop nearly 1:00 per mile for 26 miles.

I guess I could see some significant drop in time because Randy is relatively new to the sport and still improving. However, knocking 20-25 minutes off your marathon time usually requires shaking up ones training rather significantly.
