Question Best Times (Half) Marathon with CF / CFE

Hi,

I am new to CF and I want to do a half marathon in autumn.

I did lots of half marathons in the past and my PB is about 1:35h with "classic" LSD-Training.

Now the question: Is it possible to do that time again (or faster) with CF/CFE?

I looked around in the forum a little bit but could not see sub 1:45h times...

Yes, probably. Most people see improvements on their 5k times through their marathon times.

How long ago did you run the 1:35?

Have you been injured recently?

How has your training been since that 1:35?

Do you POSE run?

Certainly.

I'd recommend you cross post to the CFE forum to ask about some PRs.

Ok, but I am missing a post like: hey guy ... I did a 1:25 last year! Then I would say: here we go ...

About two years ago. I stopped running after Chicago Marathon 2007.
