  • Watch Out Paula - Mump & Flump Take On The Marathon!!!

    In what could easily be the greatest athletics folly since Isi's 4.80 entry height we've just signed up to do a Marathon.

    It's Brighton not London so the big names don't have to worry but I'm fully expecting the British rankings to be rewritten.

    Having said that I've never run further than 10k before and haven't been able to run at all since August after f**king up my achilles running around the Berlin track (It's a long story).

    Any tips or advice would be much appreciated.

            Let's see....
            Entering a marathon....never run more than 10K....achilles is already f'ed up...
            Bad idea !
            Until you can run an easy 15 miles (with some pavement adjustment) and not feel totally hooped the next day, the whole marathon experience will be ugly...

                The vast majority of people entering a marathon for the first time won't have run anything like 10k before and I have 6 months to get ready.

                I was looking more for helpful tips than prophecies of doom.

                  I hope you'll be following Paula's plan of 150 miles per week, not including sessions ... And I hope you'll be doing some fast 10k's to boost your leg turnover. ;-)

                  As long as you do the training and keep to a pace that you know you can manage I don't see the problem. I've never run a marathon but was always told that you should do at least 1 long run prior to the marathon itself so you can test yourself out.

                  Don't the Runners World and FLM websites have training plans and tips galore?

                      I'm planning to drop out the week before with bunions, tonsillitis and a stress fracture.

                          Will this be after running a preparation race on the other side of the world? :wink:

                          But good luck guys! Isn't Brighton meant to be really hilly?!

                              I might be wrong but I've been there a few times and I always remember seeing loads of hills!
