hi again guys i cant promise to be updating constantly but i feel it will keep me motivated to get out there

brief background is ,i am 35 and been running 3 years i ran london last year in 3.29.33 then in the autumn i ran chester in 3.16.33

my pbs are 

5k 19.37

10k 40.00 (1 second slower than i wanted)

hm 1.38 this is my softest pb and should be able to do this in about 90 minutes


i guess i will keep you all updated with my sessions 

i am up to 15 mile and have started throwing some speed sessions in once a week and am running between 4 and 5 times a week ,i would like it to be more ,but wouldnt we all.

Is 3:30 realistic for my first marathon (VLM)

i would definately definately join the 3.30 pen at the start of the marathon ,the last thing you want is to run 9 min miles for the first 3 and put pressure on yourself ,

Hi Katy i ran my 1st marathon in 3.29.33 that was with pbs at the time of 5k 20.20 10k 42 mins and half of 1.38

like a previous post said lots of longer stuff at a slower pace ,i did loads of 10-14 mile runs ,my longer runs were 2x18 and 2x20 run at about 9 min mile pace ,


as for race day in london the pace for the 1st 3 miles was 8min miles anyway and after that i just stayed at 7.55 - 8min mile all the way ,if i was you i would think about running at about 7.45 pace ,in my opinion it should feel really easy for the first 8 miles or so whatever pace you choose
