im planning to run 52 marathons in 52 wks,starting sept next year, just wondered if any one has any training plans/ideas they could share with me please, i have aready completed 50 miles on my 50th birthday in a time of 10hrs 12mins, and am keen to do my next challenge,but have promised my wife i would wait a year.
Slight step up there fella.
A one off 50miler is one thing, but doing a marathon every weekend for a year!? Heck of a commitment.
As you won't find a marathon event every weekend, i guess you'll be covering the 26.2 round your town or something?
Are you meaning half marathon, or marathons? I'm sure if you made it a half marathon each week, and ran at an "easy" pace, it'd be pretty doable.
Doing a marathon each week, might not be so doable.
If you do mean marathons, you mean you'd run your local half x2 quite a few weeks, and ask your chairman to witness it each time?!
Yep..half marathon each week sounds a lot more sensible...but obviously still a big challenge...you may get ill...something may come up etc...
But best of luck
maybe keep this thread rolling with updates..
You should to speak to Simon ... 100 marathons in 100 weeks. Yes, full marathons! And for the same cause too.
North London...i bet you are one of those high maintenance types in real life!
All for good causes I'm sure, but 50/100 etc consecutive weeks is kind of a MASSIVE bind on your life, and any idea of racing or training properly is out of the window! Still..each to their own !
