Welcome deedee.

I'd suggest you start with shorter race distances as aims for the immediate future with the marathon as a longer term target.

Best 2 bits of advice (IMHO):-
1. Get a gait analysis done at a running shop so you get the right shoes fitted
2. Join a running club.

All the best.

Good....it is the best thing to do...you don't want to wear shoes that cause you an injury.

If you have a running club nearby...not an athletic club..you should find support there and that will help you progress in no time at all.

Where are you based?

There are pleanty of clubs around SW London, that would be my first port of call. You learn more from hanging out at a decent club that you will anywhere else.

Aaaaaggghhh!!! Google ads!!! Aaaaaaggghhhh!!!

Sorry, one of my pet hates on any website :)

Welcome to the forum and good luck with your training.

If your interested in a full review of your website let me know, I actually enjoy reviewing websites (part of my job!) but be warned I tend to tell it how it is in a constructive way.

All the best,
O.

@owain

Thanks owain

Thats a mighty kind offer ! If you fancy giving it a good slating the please do. I just mentioned on another thread that one of my new hobbies is learning webdesign so any constructive criticism is appreciated.Especially if its your job ! Ill assume you know what your talking about !:)

As for the google ads... i thought everyone stuck em on there. If a few people read the site it might pay for hosting. Although in my very limited experience it seems everyone else agrees with you ! Probably because everyone sticks em on there !

Cheers
