Ok, this seems inevitable so I may as well face into it and just accept that I will be running a marathon at some point in the future. So I may as well get on with it and figure out how i'm going to achieve this safely. Also as I have a HM in October, it may be useful training to be running longer distances so the HM seems more like a training run. Anyways, as a place to start I need to simply ask the question.. how does one go about training for such a herculean task?
I guess it would be safe to say I have 4-6mths or more to accomplish this. I have entered the ballot for the London Marathon so fingers crossed for that, but I'd love to do a more local a less organised event and maybe even a trail Marathon.
Thanks in advance for any advice given.
