Completely possible. As a non runner I trained for the great north run 2012 in 9 weeks. I had a 6 month old daughter and weighed 15 stone and had never run before in my life. I did a time of 2:26:43 which I'm very proud of! Used a BUPA plan.
Hi, didn't want to read and run! This thread is fantastic, I am embarking on my first marathon in May (Milton Keynes) and am a very slow unfit runner. I average out at a 10.30 min mile ATM which frustrates my springer spaniel no end!
Hello! I'm running. My plan is to complete without the sweep wagon passing me. Or dying. Apart from that I'm easy going. If you see a tall chubby redhead lass puffing away at the back, do give her a wave!
