I have just finished my first year of training. It all started in Aug 2011 when I did my first Sprint Tri (without any training - just for a larf) in 2h 09 and started running in Oct 2011 with a local club and my pace was 12mim/mile!
I did 13 races this year and my fastest Sprint Tri this year was accomplished in 1h26min finishing the season with my firts Olympic at London in 3.09. Im also starting to run at sub 9mim mile,
I have improved much and signed up for the Coast to Coast in 2013 (run/bike/run/kayak/run/bike/etc etc) and although I did not feel the 'urge' or ready to to a Marathon I think it will help me greatly with stamina and endurance.
For this reason I plan to do my first Marathon (a xc one) in beginning of May.
Shall I run slower that I could possibly do to, just to train myself to keep going/train for stamina?? Or should I run at my race pace - to try my best/fastest time?
The event is mid September. Do you think that just one marathon would be enough or should I do at least a couple?
Do you have any other advice with regards to endurace training?
