Wow! This is great - so many of us in this together.
As I mentioned, I started the 30 week Hal Higdon plan this week. It means I've taken a drop in the length of my runs (until about week 14) but I wanted to make sure that I build a good base from the start and sometimes my training isn't very consistent so I think that is where my 'training' for the marathon will be in this first phase. I know what you mean runninguphill! This is still my first week, only one run of 5.6km to go. And yet, now that I'm in the headspace of following the plan - in MARATHON TRAINING
- suddenly everything feels harder! I'm so excited though!
So in our fabulous group we have:
runningcam - Canberra - April
rachinaus - Canberra - April
grannypace - Canberra - April
ShanksPony - Canberra - April (you know you want to ...)
40kmPassOut - Canberra - April
fifa01 - GOR - May
goldie* - GOR - May
leelee - GOR - May
runninguphill - Macleay River - June (or GC - July)
Didge - GC - July
KevH - GC - July (or Sydney - September)
Mark2 - Sydney - September
All the best everyone - we can do it!
If anyone's interested, I can attach my spreadsheet of the 30 week plan converted into km.
PS Watched Run Fatboy Run for the first time last night. Now I understand the references to the spatula! And I know I'm not going to take over 10 hours!! (I hope!
