Running a Marathon for the first time

Posted: Today at 13:07

The training gives you the confidence. I'm usually questioning my ability to run a marathon before I get to the 20 mile training runs on the plan. Come the day there's no doubts about getting round, might not get the time I'm aiming for though.

OP said

'What can l do to get ready for a full marathon?'

What training might be relevant or of most use for the OP I don't know but without the training required everything else is a waste of time.

Biking (not bike) advice for beginners?

Jaggy rocks, trees and landing on your head on the other hand hurt a LOT!

Most purpose built MTB blue and red routes are usually ok and cyclocross appears to be all mud so no worries there.

My OTB into a muddy ditch also on 'film'.

go mountain biking, somewhere with proper roots and hills, it will improve your bike control no end - you will fall off tho

would this training plan work?

What Stevie says, if you remain uninjured it's quite good speed work. At least give it up for the 4 weeks before the race, any knocks you get within that time won't heal properly. If it's more than a knock..........

increase speed or distance?

I think JJB going tits up didn't help, only one cheap high street sports shop now.
