1) How Long Does it Take to Train for a Sub 3 Hour Marathon? :
How long does it take to train for a sub 3 hour marathon pace is a common question I get asked here at RunDreamAchieve. A sub 3hr marathon is an extremely competitive time and will ask a great deal out of you. It can take months or even a decade to achieve.
My hope for you is that it will not take a decade. That being said, we all have different capabilities. If you are like me and lack talent then you are going to have to rely on your worth ethic. There are no short cuts with this type of goal. There is a small percentage of the world population who achieve this goal each year.
2) Sub 4 hour marathon pace MASTERY Tips:
Are you seeking more tips about the sub 4 hour marathon pace? If so, welcome to rundreamachieve.com. I started this website 10 years ago in 2011 to help runners just like you. I hold a PR of 2:19:35 for the marathon so I know how competitive a sub 4 hour marathon is.
Remember, pace sustainment is the end goal. How can you get from the start line to the finish line as efficiently as possible? More importantly, slow down less than your competitors. A sub 4 hour marathon is 9:09 per mile or 5:41 per kilometer.
3) Sub 2 Hour Half Marathon Manifesto:
The sub 2 hour half marathon manifesto is an ebook which covers my successes and failures in the sport of long distance running. You’ll learn the main strategies I followed to run 1:07:06 for the half-marathon and 2:19:35 for the marathon. The book concludes with a 12-week training schedule to help assist you running 1:59:59 or faster.

I didn’t run a 2.19 marathon by interest alone. There was heavy commitment involved in order to run that fast over that distance.
