I have entered the Edinburgh marathon next May,and this will be my first.
I am currently running 4 miles 4 times a week and between 7-9 miles after Golf on a sunday.
I have been given some advice that I will need to increase my base running before I start my scheduled training in February. What more would you kind people advise me of doing? I live in a small town and whichever route I take; the first 1. mile is uphill. I think my training could and in time be a lot better.
When I am at work ( Nights for 12 hours for 7 days once a month) I run on a treadmill for 5 nights.Treadmill runs will be anything from Fat burners to speed intervals.
I would love to be able to complete a full marathon in approx 4:30.
So any suggestions on how far I am behind schedule or is my running ok for now?
