Thought I'd post for some advice;
Ive just completed my first marathon, the Berlin, 5:33, which Im really happy with as the expereince wa as great one, totally enjoyed it, with no expectation of time just the hope to beat the sweeper bus. I was following a book,The Non-Runner's Marathon Trainer, which was great, I put no expectations just wanted a great experience, which it was; I still feel a bit of a fraud when people say Ive run a marathon, i say I jogged it
My questions next would be, what now, Id love to train and post a respectable time, but not sure how to go about it. Im several stone overweight and think id really love a sub 5 or sub4 hour time but not sure how much is possible, and how would I even go about it?
Can anyone recommend a way to go about it? I thought it would be a question of picking a sub 5 or 4 marathon program and TRYING to follow it but im sure thats not the case.
Anyway, appreciate your hep, thanks
