This is a 4hr full and 2hr half marathon plan for a marathon in 3 weeks time. This week the intent is to do the last long run. At all times remember to stay soft on your feet and try to keep your running as effortless as you possibly can.

This is week 21 of a 4hr full and 2hr half marathon plan. No, it's not supposed to be easy. I'll push you hard to get to your time but remember that you aren't a product of an assembly line and you aren't in a rat race. At the end of the day if you aren't smiling and miling at the same time, you are missing out on something big.
Majority of humans are capable of doing a marathon in under 4 hrs, just that they don't believe they can. Start with wanting to. Soon you will.
This is a sub 4 hr full marathon training plan targeting New Delhi Marathon (NDM) which is on 26th Feb. This plan is really for those who’ve managed to do half marathon in last couple of months in under 2 hours and full marathon distance in last few weeks in sub 4 hours 15 min.
Mumbai marathon is only 4-5 days away now. You need to take it very easy during these few days before the race. Even if you are not doing it and training for New Delhi Marathon, which is in 7 weeks time, take this week easy.
What you can very easily do in the last week before the marathon in your eagerness to train, is injure yourself. If you haven’t trained enough, please don’t risk a permanent injury. It might be better not to run. Think long term, not just about this one race.
I am of a firm opinion that anyone who is able bodied and is remotely fit, is capable of running a full marathon in under 4 hrs, of course with appropriate training. 85 year old Ed Whitlock recently did the distance in 3hrs 56min 39sec.
