Hi all, this is my next marathon having ran my first, the Yorkshire marathon, last week in a time of 3:18:32 and really enjoyed the experience I'm eager to start training again. I was following a runners world 16 week schedule where i was running 6 out of 7 days and knew what i was doing, i feel a bit lost now not having a training plan to follow.
First marathon for me, really pleased to finish in 3:18:31, loved every minute of it, great support and glad the weather was in our favour. Well done to everyone involved, runners, spectators, marshalls, organisers etc. Feel a bit lost now having followed a strict schedule for 16 weeks! When do i start running and how far do I go etc . See you all next year.
I'm starting in zone 2, how were the zones allocated, did we have to declare/estimate a finishing time when entering, i can't remember! As a matter of interest what are your estimated finishing times those that are in zone 2? I've never run a marathon before, i finished GNR in 1:28:59 so would be pleased with sub 3:30 but obviously unsure having not run the distance before.
