Couch Potato to Marathon in 18 weeks?

Posted: 01/10/2016 at 15:29

Absolutely! You only need to do the Marathon training plan for 16 weeks (I recommend Martin Yelling) You have plenty of time to build a good fitness base for the start of that. Do plenty of research into pacing, nutrition hydration etc. I was about 58 when I did first Marathon (Edinburgh, like coach potato) and i had done quite a few half marathons but forums like this really kept me going. My time was 4 hrs 15 mins and best time 2 years later was 3 hrs 45 mins so PLENTY of hope for you!!

Three weeks tomorrow guys!!! How is everyone feeling? Most I have done is 17 two weeks ago and a raced half last Sunday. Going to do 3 hrs 25 mins tomorrow and then taper! No injuries or niggles (touch wood!) My priority is always to be at the start line healthy and niggle free....not gonna break any records! Looking forward to the scenery!

I think my PB days have passed! Not going to beat Manchester PB of 3 45 two years ago! Too old!! But I have an aim to keep under 4 hours for as long as I can!

I can't believe the PBs! I have never had that pain in my legs before! I too am saying never again but have to say it was probably up there with the best of them.... for scenery, spectators, organisation. Great start and finish areas. I did a respectable PB is Manchester 3 45 and I did 3 57 today.
