I'm after a bit of shameless plugging and also some advice here. I've done about 8 marathons in the past, so this is a bit of a push. 2011 sees me attempting to undertake 52 marathons in the year - in aid of the obligatory charity and, frankly, my own ego! I want to see how far I can push myself. I completed the first marathon of the year yesterday and slugged around in 3 hours 55 minutes.
I completed my first 26.2 miles yesterday - legs are burning today. I hope it gets easier!
The idea is that *every* marathon will be completed in under 4 hours. If it is not, it will not count and will have to be re-done. As I'm not rich and cannot afford the travel, accommodation and many race entries, it will be with a difference. Many of the runs will be on treadmill (a great mental challenge for me, I think). The rest will be organised events, but perhaps multiple laps of 10k races, or two time round a half marathon course etc. However, if any of you organise runs, know of good runs or can recommend anything that might be of interest, give me a shout!To keep things interesting, drum up support and hopefully get some recognition of the great charities, I want to add a few twists that include a marathon on my stag do in Las Vegas, one on the morning of my wedding and one whilst on honeymoon (the mrs doesn't know yet!). Any suggestions for other interesting ways to undertake a marthon would be more than welcome! firstname.lastname@example.orgAnyway, if anyone has any tips (I'm looking at issues with recovery here!), would like to pass on any support or would like any information on it, then please give me a shout.
