Why shouldn't I run 13.1 before my first HM ?

I love your enthusiasm.  I ran over 13.1 prior to my first 1/2, it gave me a great boost to know I could achieve the distance and took some of the stress out of the race day.  I appreciate when marathon training to do the distance isn't sensible but I think if you feel comfortable doing over the distance for a half then why not!  Well done you!  I think maybe your wrong turn was fate, good luck in your half and enjoy your training for Manchester.

Hi Pete

Couldnt say exact route but it starts on the main field at Baggeridge, goes up and down around the lakes and woods etc, you end up along Himley stream, up around the woods there, back across (or should I say literally through the stream, cold but full of laughs!), then along the small tarmac road back into Baggeridge.  If you just run all over Baggeridge you will have it covered, its a great fun race and I can't wait to do it again!

What a shame, the ranger has obviously not thought about the extra foot traffic the craft fair might receive from spectators watching the race and also that many  runners are local to the area, enjoy the great outdoors and use the park facilities for training therefore contributing to the park by car parking charges and purchasing refreshments.  Never mind, I'm sure a fun day will be had by all whether it be the traditional route or Baggeridge.

Thanks Philpub, very detailed info, once again sounds achieveable and I like the idea of being slightly ahead of schedule to allow for any unforeseens (and that christmas cheer!)   Thanks all for your help.

I'm due to do the Birmingham half in early October and the Virgin London Marathon 2010, all marathon training schedules i've seen start at 16 weeks,  what level of training should I do between October and Jan - I don't want to lose my fitness as I'm doing two weekly runs of 6 miles at tempo, a short speed and a long run (to date) of 12 miles.  I'd like to increase my long runs but I also don't want to overtrain.  I'm looking for a sub 2 hour time for the half.  I started running properly 7 months ago and run my 10K races at 48 mins.  All help appreciated as a beginner as I want to complete the marathon and dont want to get injured!  Many Thanks.
