SMASH YOUR GOALS IN RUNNING & LIFE

Hi there, I’m Floris Gierman, founder of extramilest.com. This site is all about marathon running and reaching your full potential in training, racing and life.

Many athletes want to run a Sub 3 Hour Marathon, Boston Qualifier or Marathon PR, but they don’t know how to accomplish this. You’ve come to the right place!

I ran my first marathon in 4 hours and 11 minutes and it was a miserable experience. Over the years I improved my times and my current PR is 2 hours 44 minutes at the Boston Marathon. On this journey I’ve learned how to become a faster, healthier and happier athlete. I’m sharing all this here on my site.

Recently I launched my podcast “The Extramilest Show” with strategies and mindsets from world class athletes, coaches, best selling authors and me. Enjoy!

How I Ran a 76 Minute Marathon PR

This post is a summary of a few things I’ve learned to become a faster runner and run my first sub 3 hour marathon. It goes into detail about heart rate monitor training, nutrition, recovery and race day strategies.
