I am all booked in to take part in the Snowdonia Marathon in 12 weeks time and I am actually looking forward to it. This will be my second marathon after completing Beachy Head last year (just walking).
My training has been going well and I have seen some great improvements, I have now completed a number of half marathons and numerous 10K's, but I can't seem to increase my mileage up to marathon training without getting ill. Nothing serious, just colds and bad chests, but still annoying and requiring time off of training.
I have put a new training plan together using a mixture of the RW Smartcoach and Macmillan pace calculator and I have not increased my mileage any more that 10% per week at most.
It would really help if any of you marathon veterens have any advise for a newbie marathoner as I am that point where I am wondering if I will make it to the start line. I would be happy to email my training plan to anyone who thinks that they can help.
Thanks in advance...
