|Subject: ||RE: What did it take for YOU to break 2:30 marathon?|
Did it 2nd attempt in mid-20s.
miles/week:75 - 85
years training: 6-7 years, with 5-6 at 3,000 to 4000 miles/year
non-running training: a little bit in the off season, but within 3 months almost exclusively running.
Training style: long run (18-21 miles) every week; some mid-week longish runs (12 to 15 miles), but not always every week; long repeats (3 to 9 minutes [totalling 15 to 25 minutes depending on effort/pace] at 5 to 10K effort) about once or twice a week.
