Wow indeed Mouse! Thank you so much. It is indeed the CTS Sussex marathon. All their events look fantastic and I am hopefully doing their Dorset half marathon on 3rd December.
I have researched marathon programme but there aren't specific trail ones. I have bought som trail shoes, a very light and breathable jacket, a small running backpack and rehydration bladder and am now doing my long runs with them and am very pleased with them.
I live in London near a hilly Heath and do all my outdoor runs (one long and one short) there and am practising running over wet surfaces and uneven ones.
Thank you very much for all the local info and the hill training advice which I will follow. I am also going to come down at least once to run in the route.
Hi, I had to stop running for almost 5 years whilst I had babies... During that time I had hip problems and developed poor biomechanics. I started running again fir about 20' in October 2010: 1.5 years after myblast baby by c section. I had aches and lains and felt heavy. . I started running again in January 2011 using the couch potatoe to 5km runners world training programme which I forced myself to follow (I would have thought that walking/running was for seriously unfit or ultra beginners) but I have not been injured since. I completed the plan then chose the training for a 10km. I completed it and chose a half marathon one: I ran a London half marathon on 9 October this year in 1h42 my PB. My advice is start very gently and gradually. If you can choose one cross training activity like cycling or swimming and enjoy it. I am now training for a marathon. Good luck!
I ran a couple of marathons in 4h10 and 3h45 and recently a half marathon but I want to move to trail running and have registered for a half marathon in December and a marathon in March 2012 from the Endurancelife coastal event series.
Has anyone got a good trail marathon running programme or could recommendine. I do not want to run more than four times a week and more than about 35/40 miles per week (I never did more and do not think it is necessary either).
I have marathon training programme but should I train differently for a trail event (apart from adding hills and trail long runs?)
Hi, I have completed a few half marathons and a couple of marathons but really want to start trail running. There are a few events I am interested in but could do with some support and extra knowledge to plan my training for them. I found an online running coaching company called momentumsports and I was wondering if anyone had either used them or used another running coach method? Any advice? Thanks!
