Running Marathon

Hi to all,

I'm 23 days sober today and for me running has kept me out doors and busy, I'm running a half marathon in 3 weeks time and running a full marathon in 4 months time. I guess its not everyones idea of fun but if anyone else on here is running or interested in running etc would love to share thoughts and advice etc

Sorry liam616, I'm not a runner, but I really admire people who run. It takes such a lot of dedication and hard work. I will look forward to reading about your progress.

laim, I was once a big runner, would put in anywhere between 25-40 miles a week. The training was great, it's something I have told myself I need to get back to. Have you ran in a half or full marathon before?

Hi there, so you used to run 25-40 miles a week that was cool eh, yes it takes some commitment on ones behalf. You should really consider taking that leap and getting back into it, maybe even just start by going on 5-10 mile walks until u feel ready to run and you can build it up start with 3 mile runs every other day and go from there.

Yes I have run many halfs and finished London marathon in 2.58 when I was 23, so I at it again now for the fitness and pleasure it gives me.

I wish you the best of luck and really hope you push yourself to get out there and run :-)

For some its a good idea to get a checkup inc. blood tests done before such an undertaking.

Over here there are a lot of organised fun runs ranging from 5km up to full marathons and it's not uncommon for fatties to kill themselves during the event. Ironically they mostly occur in the shorter easier runs - 5km. Besides being fat and unprepared, they obviously have some underlying cardiac issue they've most likely ignored.

I couldn't imagine having a heart attack because I exercised at my anaerobic threshold for 20 minutes ...... listen to your body.

Eat/drink well, train well, seek advice from coaches and doctors along the way and most importantly listen to your body
