I am a first timer for the London marathon, got a place running for Muscular Dystrophy and really looking forward to it. I have not run a marathon for about 20yrs but have been doing a few halves this year.
Started my training schedule already with a steady build up in mileage over the months, the longest run being 23 miles, the schedule is from the Marathon Training site and looks a good plan, we will see on 22nd April next year!
Wouldnt be without my i pod nano and nike+ which keeps an accurate record of all my runs while playing my favorite tunes. Good luck to you all.
