Never run a marathon before, but always been fit and healthy, used to be a competitive swimmer and keen gym goer and am only 19 so full of life and plenty of time to rest and train.
Anway was at the pub last night talking to one of my mates, who also happens to be training for the London Marathon, I was telling him about my training recently. Last week I did almost 40 miles, including an 18miler slow, 10 miler steady, 3miles real slow and 6 miles at a tempo pace. Also did a yoga class. My friend said I would butrn out at this rate (and so does my girlfriend, but I think just worries too much) Although this was my hardest week yet I've been training at around this intensity for a little while I feel totally fine within myself.
I'm aiming for about a 3h30 in the marathon.
What you guys think am I doing to much for my first time
