I am also starting a plan of attack to do a sub-3h marathon. I've done one marathon in 3:09, three halfs- best 1:24:30, and a 10K pb of 39:12. When you say you did the 34 miler slowly-how slowly would you do it? 5:00, 5:15, 5:30/k? Would you agree with doing a fast half marathon 3 weeks before the marathon or simply keep to a taper?
