Last time Josh Weinrobe signed up for a Jack Daniels Training Plan he hit his goal time by the second finishing last year’s Chicago Marathon in 3:13:00 – a 15-minute PR! Convinced we were some kind of geniuses he signed up for another plan geared towards the Eugene Marathon this past April with a goal time of 3:05. We thought he could run a bit faster so we geared the schedule’s paces and workouts towards a prescribed time of 3:01. Can you guess what happened?
At Eugene Josh ran 3:01:25 shaving 12 minutes off his last marathon and hitting his schedule’s predicted time on the dot! [Results] We obviously would like to take some credit for these amazing results but you gotta give it up to Josh. Part of his success was due to his brilliant pacing job coming through the half in 1:30:20. In just two marathons he’s managed to bring his best time down from 3:28 to 3:01. Well done, Josh! Can we make it a Turkey and bowl three in a row?!?!
Afterwards, Josh wrote us, “3:01:25!! Training Program had me running a 3:01. Once again, Run SMART has pushed my limits and brought my marathon performance to a level I never thought possible. You’ll hear from me again soon about a program for fall marathons. I’m registered for both Chicago and New York.”
