London Marathon 2015 - 4hrs 22 mins 00 secs

Hi Stylish. I understand what you are saying. Do you think that, if possible, you should train fairly hard and allow your taper to be when you recover?

When training, I am often tired and achy. But feel this is how my body adapts to training and prepares to run harder on the actual marathon day.

But I agree that you should listen to your body, and work within its limitations.

Hi everyone.

I think that if you mainly follow your plan, you can't go too wrong. RW Ultimate plans are good.

Hi Zoe. I know that with shifts, or even just with full-time work,marathon training is not easy! I suppose you just have to prioritise the long run, plus two or three other runs when you get the chance. I have read somewhere that less is more, but I am not convinced!

I know that I would find running four times a week almost impossible if I didn't work part-time.

Hi everyone. How is training going? I missed a run yesterday as I was tired. So I still have three runs to do this week.

Hi Billy. What training plan are you doing? I am doing the RW Ultimate Schedule sub 4:30.  I am on week six of the plan, but I missed out the first two weeks.

There are still 14 weeks to go, so I think that you are on track. It is better to increase the miles of the long run gradually. How many runs are you doing in a week?

Hi Richard. Hope you are doing well with your training. The London to Brighton challenge looks a good one. I almost fancy doing it.

I am on week 3 of my training plan, and keeping to it.

So now I am on track to finish this week by doing a five and a ten mile run.

Only 101 days to go to the marathon.

Hi Chris. Hope you are on your feet again soon.

I am feeling not motivated to get out there and train. But am struggling through

The SYHA hostel in Edinburgh is £27 per night in a sharing dormitory. I booked that this year for the marathon. All of my fellow hostellers in the dorm were either doing the half or full marathon. So it was nice to talk running with them.

I think it is harder to run in the cold weather. Hope fully it will get easier for us, especially when our training plans are underway.

Of course, some are already well into their plans or keep up their training all year round. Not me.
