Hi i have just been approached to run a marathon on 30th September for Charity, i can run for half an hour just now but please help me succeed - time isnt important i just want to finish and do them proud
Have got a time in mind? don't be to ambitious but this can help your training along and be realistic, when you do a 10miler treble your time, and this your guide time that is how I worked my estimated time , also be positive enter some short races and build up your distance, this will also train you not to carried away with fast runners at the beginning set your time and keep to it. My little rule when running a marathon is. You do not win it in the first six miles, but in the last six. GOOD LUCK
William, no i havent got a time in mind yet as my current longest run has only been 4 miles so until i run a 10 miler i wont really know
but sub 5:30 would be brilliant for my first ... i think
need to look at shorter races just to practise different things
just to touch base with you hows the training going still on track for the marathon? like too know how's it going?
but try to power walk if you feel the need. and get your distance up that way your body will get used to keeping going for longer
