Hi there running first marathon here, and my running partner has got into the corral above mine (Im pink, hes whatevers is before that), as we didnt think to coordinate. We want to run together, but I have no idea what the corrals entail, can we float inbetween easily? or are they quite strict?
ALSO anyone have any experience of running with a helium balloon tied on? does it feel really annoying or no bother?!
I have decided I would like to runa marathon this year, and at the moment my sights are on the Florence Marathon in November. Why not.
My beloved neice died two weeks ago from an unexplained heart attack and I would like to run for CRY, a charity for these deaths.
I ran an off road half in March and it was great, no problems (2.20), and have been faffing about running a little bit here and tnere since then.
So now I am sitting down looking at the reality of planning tne training and its pretty confusing, different plans saying dofferent things.... I like the ones that say you can do it on three runs a week! With two samll kids, its not easy to find the time....and yeah i may just be a bit scared and worried about whether i can do this.
i would love to hear some advice from other marathoners as to how to formulate and stick to a plan... I would like to have a plan a bit like this:
1. Club night (usually tempo or fartlek)
2. 30 min run
3. Long run
4. Swim /pilates session
what you reckon? Upping the milage in the long runs and mixing up the short runs sometimes with hills/intervals.
One other thing..anyone in the Brighton area doing anything similar?
