Any fellow gwjers out there training for a marathon?
With the aim of keeping fit for prolonged gaming sessions and shaking off all that frustration from work, I've been running on and off since early 2010.
Today I'm 24 days away from the start of my third half-marathon. Feeling fairly, perhaps delusionally, confident about my progress as a runner, I'm considering signing up for the local full 42,195m to be held on August 18.
I'd be happy to hear from any other gwjer who is considering taking the leap, or anyone who has already taken it. Are you following a proper training programme, or sticking to the "run like you feel like" formula that still applies to me? How big is, in fact, the step from a half to a full marathon?
