Training for a Sub 2:05 Marathon

Training for a Sub 2:05 Marathon

A small % of people have the natural talent (provided they train optimally for themselves) to run under 2:15 for a marathon. A very, very small % of people have the natural talent (provided they train optimally for themselves) to run under 2:05 for a marathon.

However of those very few people who have ever done it, such a large % of those people have been coached/mentored by the same person:

Marius Ionescu (Romania’s #1 Marathoner) – Handling Pain

Marius Ionescu (Romania’s #1 Marathoner) – Handling Pain

Another way I sometimes push myself mentally: I say “I will stay 1 more kilometre and then we’ll see what happens after.” I get to that K and then it’s “one more” and “one more”. Counting the distance in small pieces. Telling myself that now it’s between me and my mind, but also it’s about who is mentally strongest, because definitely it is not easy for the others either.
