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
