Help! Marathon in 3 weeks

Posted: 14/08/2012 at 15:12

Depends on how long a rest, also when was the 16 miler, I would do a long slow comfortable run, see how you get on then make up my mind on whether to run or not. Accept that it may be a slow marathon but you might find you enjoy it more as you wont be sterssing over a pb.

brand spanking new!

Well done, you have started, always the hardest part. If the 60 sec bit is too much knock that down a little, maybe 45 secs. Dont go and push yourself whilst you are aching, your muscles are rebuilding themselves, allow a couple of runs just to get in the swing of it then pick up on the schedule again. If you rush it now you could put yourself off running and that would be a great shame. In a couple of months you will have picked up distance and speed dramatically, just give yourself a little time.

something on bbc site yesterday about fasting 2 days a week, only 600 cals balanced diet on those 2 days then eat normally the other five, apparently worked in a small trial



Too old and too fat??

Life is for living, get up and out the front door, every yard you go is a bonus. Start slow and steady, this is a marathon, not a sprint, you hopefully are now middle aged so have another 50 years to go. A close family member aged 80 has terminal cancer, he still walks as far as he can every day, why? because he can.

Good luck you are now in the position where you want to and can do something about your future, go for it, and let us know how it goes, just remember the hare and the tortoise story......very true.

Only run every few days, dont drink too much the night before, then get up early and run when the locals do. finish off with a swim to cool down.
