What are sub 3 hour marathon indicators? Have you run a 1:25 or faster for the half marathon? That is one. Are you able to hold 6:50 mile pace or 4:15 per kilometer for around 10 to 15 miles? That is another.

Tired of getting close to the barrier and missing it?

Are you now under the 4 hour marathon barrier and seeking a new attack plan to break 3 hours?

You have come to the right place. The new Sub 3 Hour Marathon Pro course was recently launched here at RunDreamAchieve.com. It took over a month to build, create and plan.

It is an in-depth course teaching athletes who seek a 2:59:59 or faster marathon time exactly what to do. You may be a 3:30 marathoner trying to make it to the next big jump or a 3:59:59 athlete. The same fundamentals to running a fast marathon is universal to us all. The problem is so many well-meaning, driven athletes are simply missing a few key strategies.

The Sub 3 Hour Marathon Pro will make you better in 2019 and beyond. The course concludes with a 16-week 3 hr marathon training plan. I'll be walking you through, day by day, what workout to do and the reason for doing it. I'll be ensuring you stay motivated with tips along the way.

Why Choose RunDreamAchieve?

I've been creating mostly free content here at RDA for over 7 years. As a 2:19 marathoner and 26-year veteran of distance running the marathon is what I know best.

I know what it takes to hold 6:50 per mile or 4:15 per kilometer for the 26.2 mile or 42.18 kilometer race. What I see many runners making is they second guess themselves when they don't see results fast enough.

A sub 3 hour marathon is an elite time. Your sub 3 hour marathon indicators are going to show in training. Your mile splits and leg turnover will provide the clues as you get fitter. It is not meant to be easy and if it were far more runners would be running the time with ease. This is not the case. In fact, in 2011 alone, less than 2 percent of marathon finishers around the world came in with a time under 3 hours.

The Sub 3 Hour Marathon Pro covers all the specific training strategies I used to drop from 2:43:36 to 2:19:35 in the marathon distance. It covers what to do, why you are doing your workouts and what not to do. It is not a mere 3 hr marathon training plan you can find anywhere online.

What The Sub-3 Hour Marathon Pro Course Covers…

It is just as much of a self-development course as it is a marathon training course. I'll be going over specific topics such as:

  1. Why the long run should be the hardest workout you do.
  2. Why the Kenyans make it look so easy
  3. The specific workouts you need to be doing in order to break 3 hours
  4. The importance of heart rate monitor training in a legitimate 3 hour marathon training plan
  5. The heart rate zones you need to be training at
  6. Why so many runners fail to break the 3 hour barrier and what to do to ensure you don't
  7. The top interval and track workouts I used to lower my half marathon from 1:10:29 to 1:07:06.
  8. and much, much more.

A sub 3 hour marathon training plan cannot just be a cookie-cutter program anyone can find online. An elite athlete can help walk you through the process and help you drastically lower the failure rate other runners face. There are not many runners each year that break the 3 hour marathon and for good reason.

Why Runners Fail To Break The 3-Hour Marathon…

A few of the key reasons so many marathoners miss the sub 3 hr marathon barrier are:

  1. Spending too much of their weekly mileage running slower than goal marathon race pace
  2. Long runs are far too slow
  3. Lack of patience (NOT lack of ability to break the 3 hour marathon)
  4. Not running slow enough on recovery days
  5. Relying more on their talent and not enough on consistent training
  6. Not believing they have the talent to break the barrier
  7. Lack of pace change practicing in training
  8. Sipping in training and racing and not drinking enough
  9. Not taking in sufficient caloric intake in the race
  10. Not spending adequate time training at Anaerobic Threshold efforts
  11. Lack of heart rate monitor training
  12. Confidence

I recently read about a man who attempted to break the 3 hour marathon 42 times and finally did in on the 43rd try. He ran 2:58:41.

That is an example of tenacity. Are there ways to speed up the process of breaking the 3 hour marathon? Yes but you must also be patient enough to see through the trials along the way.

Remember, running a marathon under 3 hours is a very difficult goal. Sub 3 hour marathon pace is running 6:50 per mile or 4:15 per kilometer for the entire duration of the race. No breaks.

What is Required To Run A Marathon Under 3 Hours?

You have to be almost fanatical to break a 3 hour marathon. It takes complete commitment to run a 2:59:59 or faster marathon. There is a massive difference between interest versus commitment.

You cannot be merely interested and expect to break 3 hours. If you are not 100 percent committed to the task it is best not to work toward this type of marathon time.

Runners that are breaking 3 hours have a small amount of talent but an enormous amount of drive and determination.

My goal with the Sub 3 Hour Marathon Pro course is to teach you how to overcome the pain points so many runners face. It is also to save you time and to take the guesswork out of knowing the exact workouts to do. Having a plan in 2019 will ensure you are setting yourself up for success.
