#19: From 5 Hour Marathon to Sub 3, with Michael Ovens The Extramilest Podcast

Michael Ovens (Strava), a 41 year old runner from Jersey in the UK. So far he improved from a 5 hour 15 marathon down to 3 hour 18 marathon, with his eyes set on Sub 3 marathon goal next.

On one of this races he hit the wall so hard that he thought he got hit by a bus, several great stories there. This made him relook at his entire approach to training and racing.

We dive deep into a variety of topics around his training, MAF and low HR, nutrition, racing and more. Hope you enjoy this conversation!
