VDOT Coach Mike Sweeney cruised to an 11-minute PR at the St. George Marathon. Mike’s negative split (out in 1:30:08, back in 1:27:18) placed him 19th in the M40 division.
VDOT plans changed the game for me. Got me faster, helped me get certified and now help me create plans for my running clients. From 3:29->3:08->2:57. All the best!

I would love to know how much time (months/years) was between each of the marathon times, perhaps also mileage progressions etc. It would help put it into context and show how much one might expect to improve from season to season and what kind of mileages were involved in doing so.
