My first post
As per the title, I've been given a free entry to a marathon - on bank holiday monday (as in 10 days time). The issue is, I haven't been training for it. However, as an idea to my general fitness, this year I have done a few 10k's, and a half marathon, and I have ridden (I am a cyclist...) around 1500k road miles this year. I've been mostly cycling recently (had a few long events), so haven't been putting many running miles in.
I'm going to stick in a long run this week (18 milesish) to see how I feel, but am I nuts to even consider it?
I suppose in summary, I think I am fit enough, just not conditioned enough (it will be my longest run ever). Should I pass on the entry?
Cheers, and thanks in advance.
