Bex (this is my husband's account) says - thinking of running this as my first marathon - but worried, will cobblestones be a problem? have run quite a few 10Ks and a couple of half marathons - up to 8 miles in long run training as have Cardiff Half on 15th Oct and then GSR 2 weeks after - any thoughts? I do a lot of trail and cross-country running so maybe cobblestones won't be a problem? don't know
I've just entered. This is my hubbie's RW subscription, so I've hijacked it! Tatiana, my HM PB is very close to yours - 2:29:18 so happy to swap training tips and moans with you as we head to March! I found a RW 10 week training programme for 1:50 plus which looked good plus an Ironbridge runner 16 week programme for beginners which looked good (but a little more gruelling than the RW version). Am thinking of going with the RW version starting on 1st Jan as that gives exactly 10 weeks until race day. I am currently running between 10-12 miles a week with a long run on Sat of between 6-8 miles and I want to up my mileage to 20 miles per week by Xmas (slowly adding 10% a week). My next race is an off-road 10 miler on 27th Nov which I'm slightly regretting having entered as have found out it involves running along streams!!! Bex66
Dead easy Darragh. I assume you will have a car? Fly to Heathrow and then bomb along M4 westbound till you get to M25, then M25 anticlockwise for about 2 or 3 junctions until you hit M3; then M3 straight down to Fleet. Less than an hour's driving on a Sunday
You could also fly to Southampton airport and bomb up rom there but don't know if flights very regular
See you there on 15th March. Top of the morning to ya!
