New To Marathon Running

I have taken many runners through to their first Marathon, some having only completed a 10km race ! It is relatively easy to coach a person to the finish line, after looking at their times for say a 10km or half Marathon.

However you must be realistic and I would not recommend anyone to run a full Marathon, without having first completed a Half Marathon in under or very close to 2hrs. I coached three female athletes through to their debut Marathon this year.

All three came to Spain on a number of occasions to train with me. Two were running around 2hrs 2min for a Half Marathon, whilst the third was much faster. They all finished, saying they felt great and could have run faster, thank goodness !

The problem is,

“You don't know what you don't know.”

If you have not done a Marathon, you do not appreciate, the training that is necessary and just how far it is.

I have e mails, asking me if their park runs on weekends will get them through to their first Marathon !!!

I am here to help you, just ask
