In a matter of weeks I finish University leaving me with nothing to do, actually nothing to do. I'm currently about 60 pounds over weight give or take a few (6 foot 4 inches and 245 pounds) and can probably run continuously for about 150-200 metres (I know) and was planning on commiting the next few months of my life to moving around to the eventual goal of running a marathon around this time next year.
I plan to enter a few 5k/10k/half marathons before hand, but the end goal would probably be the 2013 Brighton marathon that would give me from the 8th of May (Dissertation hand in) until the actual race day this would leave me with about 48/49 weeks to train, and I am more then willing to put in the hours/effort, yet I was mostly worried about the impact that this will have on my body. Will pushing from one end to the other cause injury? Or will I be fine? Would it better to aim for one further back?
Any help information and tips will be helpful
