Tillstar if your aim is just to complete brighton then I would adopt a run walk plan to train and complete the marathon with......poohbear and snowmaiden have done this successfully for the last 2 years , so I guess they are best at advising you on this ...but I wish you an injury free few months so you can achieve your dream and be on the start line, consider 2015 the starter and 2016 the main course ...
I'm still buzzing of news that jo pavey (my lookalike apparently in the running world) is starting the 10km and marathon, will have to make sure I get a photo taken with her and high 5 her at the start as I did with Paula last year!!!
Toby, if you read this, just a thought as I'm running the 10km this time round, as is poohbear, would she like to stand with us to watch the marathon when she has finished, we could arrange a meet up point nearer the time ..
I'm training for speed and longevity this winter as I would like a sub 50 min 10km at brighton (my pb is 52 mins) I'm also running London marathon have no time for this one, last year was 4:28 (pb 4:13 set at brighton the week before I ran London last year) London was so crowded you couldn't get going, I swore I'd never do it again, so entered the ballot anyway and got a place !!! First time ever, last year ran for charity...
Completed my first ever trail (with lots of mud) race at chipping sodbury back in September, loved it so much I've entered Brooks hell down south for the 17th January !!!! Should keep me entertained over the Christmas period doing the training , keep the mince pie and chocolate calories down anyway !!
Glad to see new faces on this thread this time round to along with us old ones eh Toby ??!!
