Guys 200lb and going for a 2:30 marathon or less this fall. Pretty impressive, I think he can do it. Thoughts?
he ran 2:55 or something on like 15-20 miles a week, but it was a downhill course. he has a running background and clearly a huge aerobic base. at this point i wouldnt be surprised if he pulls it off.
If you look at that marathon on Strava, his quickest splits were on the biggest downhill sections. Everything else was over 4min pace. He only did one 3:30 split on a huge downhill, even on a course that looks 95% down and never maintained sub 4.
So it’s possible but unless he’s going to game the course I doubt it.
Yea but he was pretty out of shape then. He just recently did 20x400m workout starting at 85s down to 65s w/ 1min recoveries. Should be interesting to see if he can run in the 2:30s at that weight
