Is this possible to train for from zero running, in ten months?

Yes

Thanks. I need to get down from 17st too

Need some advice please. I prefer off road running these days but am determined to get under 3hours 30 for a road marathon and am running London. However I am running an Ultra in March and think London will be too much. I am thinking of deferring London and doing something later in the year.
The question I have is Chester a fast course?

Steve, I lost 3 stone in a year, so youwillbe fine! The more you run, the more weight you will loose, the more wright you loose, the easier itis to run!
However, I would suggest a visit to the doctors, for a check up, and a bit of a chst about things ingeneral. Maybe go to a running club as well for some advice on training etc, you have taken the first sreps though.....

I did the doctor trip last week, and I'm all good to go. Out tomorrow for half an hour's jog. Time to start some training

Good luck steve, and enjoy it!
I have just been for a 6 mile run, 8.20 average pace. Its a bit strange being out and about early on a saturday morning, this no booze for janusry lark is a good idea!

I'm just finishing my Christmas present wine. Then I'm probably off booze for a while. Want to do myself justice, so a few tweaks to the diet and more running for me. Wife and son are biking it into town today, so I'll run in. 2 miles in and two miles back, at a slow pace. Just to get me back into the swing of things. I did Stroud HM in 2.31 with no training at all. Want to see what I can do at Silverstone with at least SOME running done

Went out in glorious sun shine at 10 this morning, planning on doing 12 miles, got back to car in thick fog, freezing cold, and buggered after getting a bit lost and did 16.5 miles. A bowl of porridge in a hot bath was most welcome on my return!

It's not as fast as London Claire, there are some long drags and a short sharp hill at the end, plus a grass start and finish, but I would think you could bag 3:30 there as well as anywhere else.

The locals are a bit dodgy though.
