So, I am a graduate who has also completed the last 5x50 successfully, but then kind of stopped doing exercise due to work and family issues.
My problem is that I agreed to do a relay marathon in 3 weeks time in Köln with my work colleagues. I was fitted with the T shirt last week and thoughtI should get sorted with some training today..
My first run was terrible. I could not keep going and had to walk a lot of the latter part of the 5.2k I managed in an appalling 40mins. My heart rate was also through the roof at over 180bpm at its peak. Bearing in mind I have to run either 9 or 12k I am now in trouble.
So I need to restart the couch to 5k, then move this on to 9 in 3 weeks!!
Has anyone any idea how to go about this and where to start?
