Hello all, I'm a regular reader of this thread and it's obvious there's some great knowledge to be shared from some experienced and talented runners. My ultimate target would be a sub 3 marathon, currently 3:07, I'm following the Runners World sub 3 training plan that is emailed weekly and it's going well. I have a reasonably healthy diet and also supplement my training with gym sessions twice a week. Whilst not lifting particularly heavy weights I do often feel like I'm overdoing it. I don't want to give up the gym as I do enjoy it, I was just wondering if anybody could offer any advice on any particular exercises. Thanks in advance.
James, i have bought an SIS marathon belt that holds 8 gels and has a pocket at the front for keys etc, i'm not a fan of carrying anything when i run but due to a bad experience of not carrying enough gels at the manchester marathon then needs must! To be honest i haven't tried it yet but it doesn't seem too intrusive.
