I have to run a marathon in 10 days time.

After 3.8km swim and 180km bike.

And I've never run further than 28km in one run.


(coach Rich says it's fine and I trust him, but I've not done this before...)


  1. It will be fine. Really. I ran a marathon distance not having run more than a half-marathon as my longest distance beforehand. You know this already but: take it steady, keep to your cadence and expect everything to ache afterwards.

    Oh, and the very best of luck.

  2. ...and not go off like a rocket after the bike because everything always feels slow at that point. Manage the effort. The theory is all there, but the unknown of it is hard for a 15ish hour "race".
