What - Great Birmngham Run
Why - final race of the season.
Last rest - Thursday
Last hard - today

Good race, took 5 mins off my PB although didn't hit my stretch target. Very well organised and a great route, mostly flat. Good number of bands, really friendly spectators, several drinks stations, good number of toilets.

LMH how is your shoulder going?

As Corgie says, there are plenty of relevant threads - I've replied to several before. Focus on overall fitness as well as your running because it will all help with basic training if you get that far.

Only to get a move on as it was very booked up when I looked back in May! But if you're staying both nights, you'll have a good chance as many hotels only take 2 night bookings on marathon weekend.

HELP! Moving from the Half Marathon to Marathon

While I'd definitely start the endurance build up. You don't want to peak early and have to try and maintain that fitness for weeks/months on end so I would say get some medium long runs under your belt and start structured training a little closer in.

What - 60k with a women's cycling group I joined recently, first ride. Really enjoyed it, discovered Jodrell Bank and the time flew
Why - trying to keep my cycling ticking over during running season!
Last rest - Tuesday
Last hard - tempo run Friday

Sounds like some good racing has gone on over the weekend. Ale, great pic. LMH good to hear you're well even if you aren't too comfy at the moment - hopefully you'll make quick progress!

Best thing in terms of running fitness is to get a plan - best ones seem to be couch to 5k. Don't be afraid to do walk/run and gradually increase the running and don't feel you've got to go at a fast pace. Look up local Parkruns which are free. Depending where in cheshire you are, there are plenty in the area. Perhaps look yo book a christmas 5k - Santa runs etc

In terms of diet, My Fitness Pal is good because seeing what you're eating is very motivating in itself. Don't starve yourself and don't over treat yourself for your runs either! But equally, plan a couple of treats every now and then.
