WANTED: Coach to get 50 YO lady to marathon

Posted: Yesterday at 15:40
Maybe a triathlon coach would be an idea - at least you know they know about running.

Why do you keep getting injured ? Have you worked it out yet ?

Too much too soon ? Pace work ? Shoes ? Until you know that - any trainer will be working in the dark.

Even if running clubs run on certain days - you can bet that their runners will be running on other days in the week - just not in a club format.

Maybe put your location in the title - local runners would be more likely to respond ?

Other than that - running clubs or meet people at parkrun ?

Yep. Plateau - you get that with that kind of training.

Waterproof running jacket?

If any jacket is waterproof it's not going to be able to let your sweat get out when running.

Important thing is to keep the windchill off - so either a gilet to keep your core warm of a jacket with panels to let you breathe. It won't be waterproof but you'll be warm.

Clumber Duathlon - Advice for a Newbie

I did it this year and finished in 1.04.

1.57 was just about the last finisher - so 1.35 won't be last but you'd prob be bottom third but everyone has to start somewhere !

It's flat out on everything - there's no rest so hard intervals might be useful.

Usual rules apply so helmet strapped on before you touch the bike and only off after bike is racked. Start and stop pedalling where they say.

Get a race belt fir your number and use that so you have your number on the front for running and back fir the cycling.
