Advice for my first marathon?

get a water belt thingy, pack jels/bars (whichever you prefer), and don't run the full length the week before. the last five miles are toughest. no retreat, no surrender.

It looks as though this village has not been used in a while. For those interested, I would like to discuss running as a way of life. Most of my runs have been outdoors, but I have moved to a cold winter climate. How many of you run on a treadmill? With an ipod or with a tv close by? I am trying to learn how to get the best out of a treadmill run, which is much different than having solid ground under your feet. I wonder if anyone else has had this struggle?

Great tool to help you decide what to wear this winter and all year round.

Yay! Spring already. Time flies. Frankly, training this winter has been sluggish. Hopefully, the warm weather kicks it off to a good start.

whats your typical weekly mileage? and when do you run?

i try to get in atleast 25 miles, almost always morning runs. keep the crazy long runs to weekends, and take a couple of days off from running during the week.

Speaking of a morning run, if you want a real spirit booster, try going out for a hard run (say, your best 1 mile timed trial) on the track in the dark at 4:00am, no matter how cold it is. Of course, don't slaughter yourself in an excruciating blizzard or something; rather, let the elements be challenging but endurable. I like to do this exercise near my peak about 2-3 weeks before a race. Not only does the timed trial give an estimate on how I would fare in a middle distance race but also a trial against the elements (darkness, morning, cold, your brain, etc.) strengthens mental toughness. Come what may, run I shall!

My weekly mileage depends on the race that I train for: 30-40 miles/week for 5K, 40-50 miles/week for 10K, and around 65 miles/week for marathon. At this time, I am running 30 miles/week for a 5K. Generally, I run 6 days/week, in the evenings on weekdays and in the mornings on weekends. For 5K, I do a long run on a weekday so that I can do a weekly interval workout on the track when it is free of high school teens early in the morning on the weekend. In others weeks, I replace interval workout with tempo run or hill training.

I get in ~30 miles a week, never weekends though, that's relaxing time. No mornings either, I love sleep too much. Ramadan running is a pain though.
