I'm not about here much these days because I'm running again.. ALOT... without pain! Waaheyy!
So I've been running regularly for about the last 8 weeks without any injury issues and really feeling the benefits from it again.
Before I was injured I signed up for a couple of half marathons in close succession and I have now taken that big leap and signed up for The Paris Marathon!
This will be my first marathon and my target is sub 4hrs which I would like to think is a fairly decent time for a first. Now like I said, I have St Neots half and Norwich half 7 days apart in November at which I am aiming for sub 1:40's in.
I'm running 3/4 times a week. Intervals 1 day a week, steady distance of about 8 miles another day and then a 10-13 miler on a Sunday
My main query is, if you were in my shoes, would you write up a training plan for the marathon or would you just try and do an extra mile every week until you hit 22 or 24mile and then spend the rest of the weeks working towards getting your speed down?
Honestly, I'm not really sure how to approach this so I thought I'd ask on here and see what advice people are willing to offer.
