Team In Training/Marathon questions
I've been thinking about doing this
, but I'm worried that I'm not motivated or fit enough to reach the goal in 4 months. Anyone here has done this or something similar and can offer some advice or something about their experience?
The Hal Higdon site says that ideally you should be able to run 3-6 miles comfortably at the start of the training. Well, I definitely can't do that. I don't have any health problems, but my 40 minutes of power-walking everyday is nowhere near running even a half marathon (which is what I'd aim for). So, should I do some training on my own before I join them? Granted, part of why I would do this program is because I don't have the discipline to train on my own, so that may not amount to much. So, has anyone on this forum gone from non-runner to marathon in 4-5 months? Is it possible?
