I'm kinda new to the running marathon thing.. and of course for a start have picked something kinda big!! - New York.... Well it's supposed to be the best for adrenalin rush - the crowds, the support?
Am doing it for an Irish heart charity, Croi - they're doing great work with defibrillators etc - we can't have enough of them!
ANYHOW I'm just looking for tips on the best training techniques. I'm currently doing a long run of 8miles once a week and 4-5miles 5 times a week?
There's a half-marathon run by the same charity in May and that could be good for training - it'll be time-trial based... PLUS it's on Inishbofin Island, which is supposed to be really fab - can't believe I haven't been there yet!
Any help, would oblige...
