Jack Daniels Training Plan customer Melissa McLane set a new PR at the Steamtown Marathon. Melissa signed up with a PR of 3:50:41, which she ran last year at Steamtown. This year – 3:44:52! Results.
Afterwards Melissa said, “Despite being nervous and feeling unprepared due to not having done a run over 18 miles, I best last years time by 6 minutes and felt AMAZING for all 26.2 miles. People kept telling me how awesome I looked at mile 24 and at the finish. Maybe I left a little on the course but I am still so happy with my performance. Your training worked magic!”
We always talk about the time improvements our clients make but one consistent theme we’re getting in our feedback is how our clients seem less likely to hit the marathon “wall” late in the race. Many have reported how surprisingly they felt good late in the race and that’s partially a product of not overtraining. Our first priority is getting people to the line injury free, so we take pride in the fact that they’re enjoying the process and feeling good about the experience, not just getting faster. That’s important.
