I've done 3 halfs never a marathon and the training was brutal I only really started taking it serious the last 4 weeks, although I did have a good level of fitness from going to the boxing, playing badminton once a week and strength training at the gym. I’m very glad I did start being serious with the running, I was going out 3/4 times a week and if I hadnt put that work in then there’s a good chance I dont make the finish line yesterday. Stayed away from alcohol, ate nutritious foods at the right times, stuck to a training schedule and mixed longer and shorter runs. I’m certainly no expert and was just sort of putting it together myself. I watched a few YouTube videos which were helpful in explaining how to structure your training as the run got closer and I think it helped massively. Got an understanding now of what an achievement completing a full marathon would be, the thought of starting another 13 mile run at the finish line isn’t something I can comprehend right now, although hopefully one day I can. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
