Last weekend saw You Can Sport coached athlete, Jack, take on the Dublin Marathon. Having made good progress with his training in recent weeks, running a 20 minute PB just 3 weeks ago at Galway Half Marathon, he went into the race full of confidence.
Jack managed yet another huge PB in Dublin. Finishing in 4hours 13minutes he took almost 50 minutes off his previous best!
Here is what he had to say on reflection of his run: “All went well, definitely scope to have gone quicker but glad I paced it sensibly. Given my previous best was 5:02, it's a massive jump in time and I definitely felt at ease the whole way through. So, a sub 4 would not be an unreasonable future goal.”
We will now look to carry this confidence into his winter training and start to focus on Jack’s target event for 2018, Ironman 70.3 Barcelona in May.
