I take it you are not a fan of Edinburgh marathon then!
yes I did the half and to be honest I disagree, I think its quite a fast run as I personally got a PB in the half and really enjoyed it, that year was hot but I missed most of It will only doing the half but I am looking forward to it, having done Belfast 5 times, have experience of running the long few miles at Jordanstown Loughshore where there is no support at all and ran it in severe conditions so I will be prepared for the bad weather.
HI All , well its been quiet sometime since I have been on this forum! took a break from running for a while but I am back and cant wait and going to be registering for the Edinburgh Marathon, this will be my 7th but my first time doing the whole of the marathon at Edinburgh.
So I am wanting to start my training plan as soon as, its not to 28 May is it too soon for me to plan my training, or should I just start into my running and do my plan once January comes?
I am not one of these runners who trains every single day! but had planned on going to the gym twice a week, and running 3-4 times a week, I also cycle to and from work. When I don't get to the gym will go out walking or core workouts on my rest days.
just wanting some advice really from any of you running pros, if you think I am doing too much, too little or just enough?
also would love feedback on your thoughts of Edinburgh Marathon??
i have a question on tapering my marathon is in 3 weeks and a few weeks ago i experienced pain in me legs last 2 mile on a long run, so i got my gait done and after twice been analysed previously as a neutral runner i now am an over pronator so was advised to get asics gel gt2000, so last week i missed on a long run, in between buying new shoes, so now i have to get in an 18 mile and 20 mile, not sure this is do able? I am going to do my 18 mile this week, what is your advise on tapering a week and a half before marathon or should i just do one more long run and taper? I know its a tight squeeze.
oh the shoes i have been running in i have done a few long runs in them now but each time been getting blisters, the older shoes i would say i have done a few hundred. this is my 1st 15 mile, have done a two 13 and a 12. i feel fine today but just legs were aching the last 2 mile.
