Hello to all, just looking for some advice. Having recently recovered from an injury that's had me out of action for a few months, I've decided that I want to get back up to standard and then some by hopefully running a marathon. Trouble is, I don't really know how to prepare and train for one. Before my injury, my running routine was a mixture of 5.5mile steady paced runs, a 4 miler and a best effort 2 miler spread over a week. Since getting better, the shortest run I've done is a 4 miler. So I have been running 4 miles 3 times a week and a 5.5 miler once a week. Yesterday, I ran the furthest I ever have by doing a 7.5 miler at a reasonable pace. I'm pretty shot after that. Now, what I don't know is how I should structure a running programme for training from here. So, having run that 7.5 miles yesterday - What do I do from here on out? Do I only run at least 7.5 miles from now, and build from there and when I reach 8 miles only run that distance and so on...? and how often should I run with these increased distances? Any help would be much appreciated, many thanks.
