3 Hour Marathon Training

3 Hour Marathon Training Tips

3 hour marathon training is not for the faint of heart. It takes a special caliber of athlete to dip under the sub 3 hour marathon barrier.

3hr marathon training

It was stated in a recent article that in 2011 less than 2 percent of the world’s marathon finishers came across the finish line in under 3 hours.

What Should 3 Hour Marathon Training Include?

Runners dipping under the 3 hr marathon are training at speeds that far exceed their goal marathon race pace.

A 3 hour marathon is equivalent to holding 6:50 per mile for 26.2 miles or 4:15 per kilometer for 42.2 kilometers with no breaks.

There are many runners who can hold these paces for a few miles. It is another thing to hold that pace for the entire marathon distance.

The 3 Hour Marathon Pro will ensure you hold the pace for the endure 26.2 miles or 42.1 kilometers.

It takes patience, some genetic talent and commitment. It will not be done by mere interest. The talented athlete who is merely interested will more than likely get beat by the determined athlete who is committed.

The faster you want to run the more that is required. This is why I built the Sub 3 Hour Marathon Pro course. It was specifically built to help runners who want to hold sub 3 hour marathon pace achieve the goal faster.

The key to running fast for long periods of time is getting the body to clear lactic acid faster than it is building up in the blood stream.

How The Sub 3 Hour Marathon Pro Can Help?

One of the biggest burdens for many runners is simply having a plan. People are already highly busy tending to life’s responsibilities. Children, mortgage payments, credit cards, car payments and more.

Our goal with the sub 3 hour marathon pro course is to take away wondering exactly how to set up a 3 hour marathon.

We’ll be covering all the minute details that goes into holding 6:50 per mile or 4:15 per kilometer without slowing.

The biggest obstacle is the so-called “wall” so many runners experience. I can tell you that when I ran 2:19 for the marathon I didn’t experience the “wall” until the last 100 meters of the race.

It was like an ocean wave hit me when I rounded the corner of the 2007 California International Marathon and saw 2:19:11, 2:19:12, 2:19:13 ticking away on the clock.

All of the training that I did that will be covered in the Sub 3 Hour Marathon Pro course will be covered.

You’ll be following the exact same training I did to go from 2:43:36 to 2:19:35.

The key to 3 hour marathon training is spending more of your time focused on quality versus quantity.

Long slow running makes for long slow runners.

What Makes For A Successful 3 Hour Marathon Training Block?

You have to change up the way you are doing your long run. It cannot be just an easy, slow, long run every weekend.

The hardest workout that I do is the long run.

It isn’t mile repeats, hill intervals or tempo runs.

You have to continually mix up and train at various speeds.

Remember, 6:50 per mile or 4:15 per kilometer is the “average” pace you need to sustain throughout the marathon.

You’ll be running some of your miles and/or kilometers faster than goal marathon pace.

Specific Training For Maximum Results

We will be covering specific training strategies that will teach you how to adapt to the various pace changes you will experience in the race.

Runners will try to surge away from you. The training you’ll be following in the Sub 3 Hour Marathon Pro course will ensure you are able to react to those surges.

Laban Moiben and John Kathoga of Kenya did exactly that to me during the 2007 California International Marathon.

My best marathon prior to the start of that race was “only” 2:40:02 and I was running with guys that had 2:10-2:12 marathon bests.

On paper, it might have not been wise to try to keep up with these guys but the training I did said otherwise.

My half marathon PR of 1:07:06 showed the potential was there.

Why The Sub 3 Hour Marathon Pro Is Essential

All runners have to take a risk in the race. If you are confident in the training then you can make those risks when you race again runners that have better times than you.
