As the title suggests I could do with some tips/help. I've lurked here for quite some time, first time poster
So I'm dabbling with the thought of training for a marathon (Bournemouth in October ideally with other races before hand to build myself up) and am looking to shift a couple of stone in the process. I'll give you my vitals if it helps:
Age: 30 (well, in a couple of weeks), Weight:15st, Height 5ft 10.
So I used to run a fair bit, and i've got back into it recently. I only ever used to go out for 5k in an evening unless I was feeling brave and chucked a couple more on and used to go out with a running group where I used to live once a week.
I've recently joined my local gym and have the time to go for a good hour or so every day. I enjoy running outside and on the treadmill and for the most part of the training I plan to do I'd be in the gym as they have a pool and all the other fun equipment to use! I've been upping my distances and can quite comfortably run 10k now also.
Basically I'm looking for help in putting a plan together for running but also with resistance/strength training, I'm happy to go to the gym every day so I can do weights etc when I need to give my legs a rest. I've made the mistake of spending a lot of time reading up and there is so much info about i'm now lost. I definitely want a good mix of running and the strength/resistance work.
If anyone is doing anything similar I'd appreciate a hand!
