I am keen to run in a marathon next year, and didn't get in to the London Marathon, so am thinking about running in Paris in April. I am currently on a cycling trip around Asia, and can comfortably cycle around 80-120km a day, cycling for a couple of days, and then a day or so rest. I'm going to keep on doing this until early February, and then I return home. I thought that it would be good to run in a marathon while I'm fit from all the cycling - I'm hoping that as I'm fit enough to cycle long distances, it won't take me as long to get fit enough be able to run in a marathon. If I'm going to run in Paris then I would need to start training pretty soon, but I don't know if I'm going to be able to go running as well as doing all the cycling - I think I'm going to end up knackered all the time! Do you reckon it's possible to translate the fitness from cycling to running??!
(The furthest I've run before is 10km)
