Beware everyone! Yes, there's a universe of difference between the two races - but the full marathon distance tends to bite you in the rear, around 30km it makes you swear never to do it again, and after a shower and a beer you're looking on the race ads for the next one! I speak from experience, I'm hooked. Next one will be number 30 - so look out folks, 26.2 is totally addictive

I'm new to running and was wondering if it is possible to train for a marathon with nearly all of my run's being made on a treadmill? VINTY.

Ingrid Kristianson and Grete Waitz, 2 of the world's best ever female marathoners, did almost all of their marathon training on the treadmill because of the winter weather conditions in Norway.

To train for the marathon on a treadmill would be the most boring thing ever.

What makes you want to run 18 miles + indoors, going nowhere?

I suggest you saddle-up and get to them hills.
