  • I Have a Plan


    Oct31201411:48 a.m.

    A couple of short runs this week have been fine, so today I will head out of 7 miles. It is a beautifully sunny  day here so should be enjoyable.

    I think I have sorted out  my marathon training plan. I am looking to use the Hal Higdon Novice 2, with a bit of adaptation. Although I have not run a marathon I have settled on a Novice 2 plan as I have run 4 half marathons, run 10 miles on a Sunday pretty regularly and  run 4/5 times a week almost every week for the last 7 years. So having chatted to some more experienced friends I think although I am slow I should be Ok .

    I am trying to give myself about 5 Golden Rules to follow, so far I have 

    1. Be Consistent

    3. Eat well.


    Feel free to give me your suggestions of what the most important parts of marathon training are

    • hollywooddave 'hi there:) im no expert and for me the most important part is visualising the finishers medal around your neck,take a picture in your mind how proud you will be once its done! also dont worry when the bad runs come as we all get them and dont get too excited when the good ones come and go too mad! stay calm,stay focused,its a very long journey but the pot of gold at the end is fabulous!' added 31st Oct 2014
