Sorry I haven't been on in a while! Just to update you I completed my first marathon on 29th October in 5.18.03 and it was fantastic! So glad to finish it in one piece! Dublin was brilliant and I'm considering next year! I would recommend it to everyone and such an amazing atmosphere!
Bill I know exactly what you mean about Phoenix park now!
I agree that a half would be better there's one at the start of September I have found so that will be the one I will do! I will certainly do more walking to help -the dog will appreciate that. I'm running the Dublin marathon. I have got a plan and am committed to doing it. Im also trying to incorporate hill sessions that are being ran locally! My aim is to get round it this time in one piece and I will worry about my time for the next one I do! Thanks for the advice
Thanks guys! Cougie I've got a plan to follow and Im on week two of it I'm goofing to look at the two u posted see if they look better thanks! Tri chick that's a brilliant pb. Blackbrogue I'm not worried about what time I do it in getting it finished will be my achievement im committed to it now so i may just get my head down!I've been looking for a half marathon to do but I have had to settle for a 10k at start of September,( I've done two before and ran them in just under an hour!) hopefully if I keep searching I can find a half close to home! Thanks again for all the advice!
I have just signed up to do my first marathon on 29th October, I am a complete beginner and would be grateful for any tips from the experts! I'm currently running 3 -4miles about three times a week. It's safe to say I think I've bitten off more than I can chew ????
