Beginner hitting wall !
First time marathon training for next April. Aged 43 and coming to the end of playing footy !! Currently on week 5 of the websites training plan.
Jogging for up to 50 - 55mins covering circa 5.5miles.
Seem to hit my personal wall here. I have not made any nutruitional change to my diet or introduced any supplements.....Can people make recommendations ? The jump to another 21miles seems enormous.
Any guidance welcome as currently training and learning alone..... CHEERS
Hi there......something about your post just caught my eye.
Quite a while since you posted it so you are probably zooming off ahead now and well stuck into your training plan and might well have overcome your personal 'wall' by now.
At the time you posted, doing 50 - 55 mins for a 5.5 mile run was pretty good and am sure you have progressed since then.
Before I post any more or go into waffle mode, do you fancy giving us an update on how you are doing ??

50 to do and will let you know when I'm there - but am still one ahead of Sir C de Custarde....oh no, hang on...am now TWO ahead......mwah ha haaaaaaa.
I'd like to know how you're getting on too?!
Up to approx 9 miles at best now.
Doing circa 35miles per week.
Seem to suffer around the 1hour mark and would welcome any advice on energy gels / tablets etc etc
Cheers Keep Warm !
Hey woodman you're doing really well. I always think it's a battle of wills when you get to these distances. I like to take something with me like fresh dates or jelly babies and take a couple on board just before I get to those milestones (which for me are at 4 miles 7.5 miles and usually around 14-16 miles)....jels are OK but I don't rely on them and prefer real foodstuff. Rob likes my idea too as it's the only time he gets a date..!!!
You sound like you're doing really well. Falnker2 has given some good advice here that should help you out.

Sounds like you're doing well. Good luck with the training!
