Finally, someone on this board who understands running!
Do you think Wariner should go out in 49 for like a neutral split 1:38 or should he REALLY impress people with a 49.5 48.5 NEGATIVE split 1:38?! Dude's run 43.45 so he's gotta be able to run sun 1:40, AMIRIGHT!?!!?
With a 1:01 half marathon time, he has the potential to break 2:10. He will eventually figure out the marathon and run a time close to 2:10 in the near future.
Haha. So true.
News flash running a great half doesn't mean you will ever run a full marathon that matches that performance. Think half marathon world record holder......
What was he training for when he ran that 1:01? The half WR was probably set on half training. It makes perfect sense that it would not translate into an equally fast marathon. If Braun was training for the full and ran 1:01 that would be more indicative of marathon potential.
