Preparing for a marathon from scratch, in 22 weeks.
well done you!
your weight loss is tremendous.
did you create your own '0 to marathon' plan or could you tell me where i could see it?
i'm down 2st 13lbs since last june, and have completed NHS couch to 5k programme last autumn.
(restarted it last week as i've had months doing nothing last autumn)
evening casey and steph,
steph, how much smaller are you hoping to get to? you've shrunk impressively already!
i have lost 3stone and am 15st 10.5lbs at 5' 8" and about size 18, and 'the experts' say my goal weight should be around 10stone! i'm aiming for 13stone and see what everything is like then.
casey, gosh you have determination to get out running with a small child, well done you!
you both sound as if you'll make it.
i ran this morning, went ok, but early days yet.
have a great weekend all.
Big challange mate! but possible, your asics training is it only a phisical training? I think the most important training you need to archieve this goal is your mental training.
If you are not following any mental training with your phisical training, higly suggest you to do so.
I started running last year to lose weight and got from not being able to run 2 mile in April to finishing Chester marathon in 3:53 in October so it can be done. Good luck!
I'm starting from 0 to H/M in September after being roped in by one of my crazy clients!
I'm very excited though as I'm loving the training!
Hope you do well!
Keep at it!
We like reading about your running
I ran 5k for the first time yesterday!
It's Sunday so time for my long run. Which i know is not a long run for most of you but for me it is. 5K and well umm err normally it's along dirt tracks and fields by the canal, went on a different part of the canal, and this was more paved, so a lot smoother, so... my third ever 5K and this was 4 MINUTES quicker than the two that I did last week. What an imporovement, and my heart rate monitor said I did over half of it in the 4+ Range that it says is greatly improving my cardio vascular system. So very happy, will be slower probably when i do it in the week on the different course.
Anyway it's done I now have a 5K on Tuesday and Friday as well, and my first 7K next Sunday. But, everything is at least 5k now. I just realised that I have one more week, and then i'm in the 16 week countdown to the Marathon.
I'm a little scared at that thought, as compared to lots of people on here i'm so slow and crap. Oh well onwards and upwards.
