I'm am trying to decide whether it would be a good idea to attempt to the Belfast marathon next monday (7th) or not. I am not sure I've completed enough training (due to work commitments + injury).
I've completed 2 x 13 miles, 2 x 15 miles, 1 x 17 miles, 1 x 17.5 mile and 1 x 18 mile during my 16 week training but shorter runs have been very sporadic. The 18 miler was 3 weeks ago. I wasn't particularily tired after the 18 miles (was quite happy to go to work straight after) but I was stiff and sore for a couple of days after. Also not sure if I'd have been able to keep going for another 8 miles!
I've no intention of aiming for a particular time, just to complete it without doing myself any damage.
Does anyone have any advice/opinions? I'm completely torn as I get very polar opinions from friends and family!! Its my first marathon.
Thanks in advance xxx
