The 2015 Marathon Thread

Apologies if this has been asked before.
I would like to run a marathon next year. My plan is to build up to 10k, 10 miles, half marathon then a full. What is a sensible timeframe to put around training for a marathon? I don't want to overdo it nor do I want to take too long.

Thanks.

Well I'm happy with them. I had my gait analysed and then analysed in the shoes. They are comfortable.

I've not run for around four months due to injury, I'm back running now and taking it slowly to begin with, running 1 to 2 miles every other day. I'm finding that I am tight chested and breathless when I run, is this normal? A work colleague said that you do lose lung capacity if you stop running, is that the case and will I regain.it? Thanks.

I have to say that of all the times that I have posted questions on these forums this is the first time that I've received snarky responses like these. Why anyone would feel the need to behave like this I just don't know.
It seems that you can no longer ask for other people's opinions/views on issues.

Apologies I didn't realise that contributors to this forum were born with all the knowledge that they have and that others of us shouldn't ask.
It was a genuine question that I askedto get advice on. Look at any of the forum and you'll read them, is it OK to ask for training tips? Personally I think you should get over yourselves and if you think a question is silly then don't read it or respond to it.

I would apologise for offending your sensibilities but I really can't be arsed.

Blimey VDOT50, calm down! I thought the purpose of this forum was for people to ask questions. If that irritates you as much as it appears to then can I suggest that you refrain from reading them?

So, walked to work this morning, my foot is sore down the outside from my little toe to the arch. No stabbing pain or knee buckling just a dull ache. Should I rest it for a couple of weeks? The walk is part of my commute.

I didn't get pain yesterday, it was this morning when I walked to work and then this evening. The reason I did 3 miles yesterday and 2 today is because to get back into running I'm following a half marathon plan for beginners.

Oh well, I'll rest it for a couple of weeks. I assume I can cross train?
