For a true endurance monster converter you should also see that HM is better than 10k which is better than 5k. If that isn't the case, I'd expect there's a time that isn't representative in there.

Is the assumption that a 1:26 hm wouldn't convert to a 3hr marathon if it was run today, or in the spring after a full marathon training plan? Wouldn't you expect that 1:26 will improve by a February HM following training, which will likely close the gap?

DD - 2 fold isnt it

If it is 1.26 in Campaign then it is tough but possible.

If the 1.26 is improved during the campaign then you are not converting a 1.26

Exactly Gobi, if 1:26 is the entry to marathon training, then that seems to be quite a good place, so long as you are confident that the marathon training will actually deliver improvements
