Lennart de Lange of Amsterdam, Netherlands completed his 18-week marathon plan right on target at the London Marathon. Along the way he even set a new half marathon PR running 1:18:55.
When we originally uploaded Lennart’s plan to his VDOT O2 calendar we projected a finish time of 2:45:12. After he ran his 1:18:55 (59.3 VDOT) in Week 12 we consulted with him that he was right on target since the equivalent performance for the marathon was a 2:45:01.
So how did he do!? Lennart emailed us his results:
Thanks for the schedule and advice! It resulted in 2:45:03. I ran an even pace with a negative split (01:22:40 vs. 01:22:23). This results gives me access to other Majors such as Tokyo and NYC, so I am really happy with it!
Nailed it! 8-minute PR. You can check out Lennart’s result here.
