I have definitely gotten better with more training and base mileage. It may appear that I do better in the shorter races, but since I have been perfecting my training regimen and getting more base mileage in I should be able to do better in all race lengths.
So, the age graded percentile for a male of 35 years running a 3:15:59 marathon is 63.74%, which is an entirely feasible goal if I train hard through the Summer. I will set up some benchmark races this Summer to see if I can really do it at MCM this year. I think that I'll need to get the following:
- Race A - 10K - 42:00:00
- Race B - Half-Marathon - 1:33:00
- Race C - 5K - 00:20:00
I've got the training plan to do it (see here) now for the work. Progress will be logged.
