Happy New Year to all ! Margaret - there are good Marathon training plans in "Runner's World" January edition. I will use the "beginner's" one and after all that time saying I'd never attempt the distance I am signing up to Berlin, hopefully with Macmillan. I'd love to try for the London but I don't have a place and I don't think I can raise £2,000 and train in the short time left. Good luck with your training. Assume you have done a half or just about to do one?

Hello everyone, after an injury hit couple of years, my new years resolutions are to run as much as I physically can! but in particular to run the entire length of the River Thames and then the Virgin London Marathon over 12 days maximum to fundraise for the British Heart Foundation. Any tips for me people? Happy New Year!

I'm going to run minimum of 15 miles a week and 4 half marathons before the end of year. Happy New Year everyone

Happy New Year everyone. Margaret, I am doing London too, and have never run more than a half before. So my resolution is to stay tight to the training schedule!

Just the one sort of running resolution, basically to run a marathon PB.  Three main 2013 fitness related resolutions are that I am gonna have a real go carving out a six pack.  Think it's more of a problem of just needing to rid myself of a little bit of fat from the belly, have a feeling the abs are already there, just hiding!  Secondly I wanna up my cardio in the gym - linked to the six pack resolution -  so that's going to require 3 trips a week rather than just 2.  Oh, and simply because my mates are doing one I've gotta do a triathlon.... which means I need to start going back to the swimming pool!!

December 31st and motivation for all three is as high as it can be!

Edvanson... that's very challenging you must be super-fit ! Good luck with it.. it sounds very hard.  Matsmum - Yes, do keep to your schedule.. I get out rain or shine - prep. is everything (lecture over)

Sarah - have  you booked a half yet ? April is just round the corner ! Good luck with your "tri" "Monk" - I can cycle but swimming hopeless so not for me !

sub 80 minute half a tough but properly do-able goal for me. sub 79 minute half to qualify for new york 2014 would be tip top!

I would like to be able to just fit more runs in without things getting in the way! And to enter more than 1 race this year.   And to go a bit further than last year.  Not much really !!!!

Hi, I've entered my first marathon. I'm running the Manchester Marathon in April. Tried to give up swearing a chocolate the year before - hope I'm more successful with this one... http://itsallmyownwork.wordpress.com/2013/01/03/marathon-is-a-four-letter-word/

Margaret - I am 65 too and running London....but there the similarity ends because I have never run more than a half!  My number is 2540, and I have made a note of yours. How do you know which start you are going to be at?  Good luck with the training.

Would love to give up drink for good but sometimes after a long week it just comes calling

Hello & Happy new year all

Have a couple of things (more promises to myself than resolutions really):

1) My running goal is to run 2,000 miles in 2013. (getting too old for any pb's so thought this would be a good goal instead)

2) Move house (need to upsize)

3) Take up a new hobby...fancy trying something creative like a craft. Might stick to baking cakes though! Seriously though... I think of all the things I did as a kid: athletics, played guitar, sang in the choir, creative writing, gymnastics & football...I'd like to re-discover my creative side once more
