New to this site and this is my first post! Looking for some information and advice about moving from a half marathon to a marathon.
I completed my first half marathon as part of Sunday's Great Scottish Run. My training began 12 weeks before the event with about 3 runs per week but it did stall for a period of 4 weeks inbetween where I done no running at all. My average milage was between 10-12 miles a week, all done at a pace between 7.20-8.40
Going in to the event my target was to break 1.45 (8 minute miles) but i susprised myself and finished in 1.42. I am now aiming to complete the Edinburgh marathon in May of next year.
Is a goal finish time of 3.30 overly ambitious? And, what would be the best type of plan to follow in order to make the transition? I plan on joining the local running club in the mean time to build on any progress I've been able to make so far.
