|Subject: ||RE: Slow marathon vs 5k and half. Any advice?|
I had a similar thing, 3:08 full from a 1:26 half, whereas most calculators were easily predicting sub 3:05. I also was on pace up to 20 miles. I peaked at 60 but probably averaged 50MPW.
I got two helpful responses in the marathon training thread which both said what people here have said: "more miles". I was probably in the same mindset as you with regards to my half time, thinking that I just needed to turn up and run the predicted times, but I guess the marathon doesn't work that way :)
