Jack Daniels Training Plan customer Rowan Jones of Waverly, KY ran the Disney Half Marathon and Disney Marathon on back to back days last weekend. On Saturday Rowan finished the half in 1:28:00, a new PR by 18 minutes! The following day he came back and ran the marathon in 3:12:22, a 37 minute improvement from his previous marathon best. So, the question is, how fast could he have run the marathon in without having run the half the day before?
Run SMART client Rob Delong lowered his half marathon PR for the second time in two months at the Disney Half this past weekend. Delong finished in 1:46:03, a new PR by three minutes and 12 seconds. [Full results] He also managed to set a new 10k PR by 30 seconds in route! Delong has now PR’d in just about every race he’s run since he signed up for coaching back in February of 2012.
“The plan was to average 8:07 pace (1:46:23) so we’re super excited things went according to plan. Anytime you pick up two PRs in one race you’ve got to feel pretty good about your training. Rob is right on track to reach his goal at Boston in April,” said his coach Brian Rosetti.
