I'm an occasional runner, currently hovering around week 4 of the couch-to-5k program, but I'm feeling really inspired to do the marathon next year. I am young, fit (in terms of other forms of exercise) and healthy, apart from the occasional knee twinge and back problem, both of which I do exercises for and am prepared to have more treatment for if it stops me running.
SO, if i can get to 5k, and then 10k within 6 months-ish, is a marathon in 12 months do-able? It's hell for almost everyone, isn't it? Am I delusional?
Any advice would be fantastic!!
Thanks for your help
