I have just joined and would like to ask a question about training.
I was entered in the London Marathon for this year but could not run because I was knocked off my bicycle at work in January( I am a postman).
This resulted in my having my half my cartlidge removed in May. I have taken up the offer of a place next year and am slowly getting back to my January running level.
My question is that when I was following the London Marathon training guide as printed in their magazine I became very tired. I was wondering whether this was because being a postman and walking between 5 and 8 miles every morning, plus about 4 miles cycling I should be religiously following the programme?
Was I doing too much and not taking into account my energetic job?
I am a fit 56. Has anybody any advice?
