18 weeks doesnt feel that long to go from 0 - marathon, especially given that I would want to do 3 or 4 20 miles in that time. I think it's doable, maybe, if i dont have any set backs. I am pondering San Sebastian at the end of Nov as a back up plan. That would be more $$$ than doing Abingdon though!
Going for my first run today. 2 mins running with 1 min walk breaks between. It's progress but kind of depressing at the same time. My last run was 20 miles back at the end of Feb! I have 4 months to race day. It's going to be tight.
Hope everyone else is well and those who are looking for places are starting to get them.
If you call the new balance factory shop in Cumbria (a place called Shap i think), they are pretty good at giving advice and their shoes are usually cheaper than most shops. They are really nice in there and not pushy at all.
