Hi Guys. I'm 52 and trying for my first marathon. I've run two halfs at 2:04 and 2:09, but I was pretty beat after those.... 26 is a VERY long way!   I'm running for an hour or an hour and half every day, but I just really struggle for the motivation and time to do the 10+ miles long runs that are in my programme.  I'm runing the Watford half on 3 Feb, so that should help.  Are you all doing long runs already?

only doing one mile more every weekend, currently on 9 miles.  That should get me to around 20 miles prior to the marathon, which is what most people seem to advise.  I am doing the regime from Marathon news, running for four times a week, but only for 30-45 mins for the weekday ones - any more than that and i would be knackered.  Can feel my legs working hard already.  "better to undertrain and have energy than overtrain and get sick".

Drusy, great HM times, i'm only 33 and can't seem to improve much on my speed!

Thanks Lucy,

 I've been listening to the Phedippidations Podcast and following advice to just work on building my base now... I just want to make sure I don't get injured and miss out on a chunk of training.  So no speedwork right now!

 It was really hard to get out to run today in that rain...even with the dog pestering me!

i know what you mean - i run along the promenade in eastbourne and was able to lean back in to the wind on Mon morning and not fall over backwards!  Couldn't even see where we were running when heading into the wind and rain - felt great afterwards though once i'd reached normal body temp again!  Great for the complexion

Keep up the good work - can't believe it's sunny and no wind today, which sod's law is my day with no running!!

Hi All,

 I have just completed my 10 mile weekend run and I have really empty legs!!  My half marathon times are much slower than Drusy, I do hope I meet my target.  Long runs not giving me as much grief as the speed training, struggling to meet the targets set in RW sub 4:30 schedule.  Feel like we are a long way into the training now, hope I still have time to achieve the speed targets.  So glad It was not raining this weekend, so fed up with the rain.
