I'm running the Edinburgh Marathon next may and I've heard quite a lot about the FIRST plan from the Furman Institute. I also intend to buy the book 'run less run faster'.
I've not got a particular time in mind for the marathon as it's my first one, I just want to give myself the best chance of a good time with a rreduced chance of injury in the training. (I've read that this plan is good for people who are injury prone).
I'm currently just getting my base milage up after another bout of shin splints. (think i've banished those for good now though...touch wood).
Has anyone else on here tried the FIRST program? and if so did they have success with it?
