Even though I have no idea what I am talking about I do agree in principle, think I may follow the Hal higdon one at least for the first 2-3 weeks then depending on how I feel move onto the first. have already lost half a stone in a week that I'm Puting completely down to diet!
I have looked at the programme again and I think I will start using it so thank you for your post! I think I was a little bit discouraged by all the information! One question though in your experiance could a cross train be for instance a cycle? And would an easy run be say 2 miles or something?
Thank you Elizabeth I like the plan simply because It has structur which is something I seem to defiantly lack. In terms of what people at about diet and weight I completely agree. I work as a chef so it's really hard to not pick as tasting foods pretty much the main part of my job! I have however cut out red meat except for once a week and I am eating more fish and chicken.
It seems like when I run aerobicaly I am fine at the moment I don't become breathless and feel like I can run further then I do, however it's my
Legs that are slacking majorly at the minute!
Also I am finding it very hard to breath through my nose does anybody have any tips? Aids?
Thank you for your support, the charity is sending me a personalised pack however I do think it's best to see what has worked personally for other people. Hopefully will be easier to find something that suits me after seeing what has worked for other people! I appreciate the comment but it was me who applied to do the marathon to raise money I wasn't drafted or anything!!
I currently work 60 hour weeks and squeeze my running in at either 5 in the morning with my 2 dogs or at 9 o'clock at night when I have put my two year old to bed and cooked tea for my 7 month pregnant girlfreind, the money to raise isn't to repay a personal debt, its to raise awareness for a charity that does fantastic things for children and young adults with cancer, the money that people donate to the charity is to enable them to provide
Service to cancer patients that is life changing and inspiring.
All the money in the world could never repay the debt I feel towards to charity.
Thank you for your comment though.
