I've been running again for about 2 months now since being out for a year with 3 consecutive fractures. I've got my confidence back again which was the hardest thing and am now able to run 8k, I'm building up slower this time. To give me something to aim for I have entered my first marathon next year. It was during my first half mara last year that I fractured my fibula. When training for my half, my 5k PB came down by a minute. I put that PB into the McMillan calculator and was quite surprised by the marathon time it gave me. I just wondered how achievable/realistic this is ? I appreciate that a sensible training plan and remaining injury free are key but should I target this time ? I noticed also that the predicted time for my half was 10 mins quicker than I was aiming for and apart from breaking my leg I was feeling pretty good and considering upping my pace. in the end it was all I could do just to finish !
