18 weeks to go for the Jakarta marathon. The last (and first) marathon was London in 2001. I ran about 3.50.

My marathon is tomorrow, I haven't trained anything and I am reading comments like"My marathon is 12 weeks ahead! I'm so excited!" I thought it wasn't a big of a deal

Don't train through injuries hoping they will get better! I started getting hip bursitis couple months back that I tried to do light training through but it hasn't worked, so now I'm going to take a good few weeks off completely to let it heal. That's going to be about 11 weeks all together of no decent training rather than the few weeks it could have been if I wasn't so naive. Lessons learned and now to move on! Hopefully will be ready for my first marathon in September :)

I won my first marathon, a Boston qualifier in 93 degrees and 2 10 minute hills, and I am not a runner, per se (serious cyclist, but 175# which is heavy for either sport). Don't think you need to run for a year prior to beginning training if you have done plyometrics all your life or recently and are strong, don't even think you have to start by running at all.

Take your time getting your body ready, no days off for core, and no missed workouts, ever (ICE, SNOW, 2 weeks never above 32 degrees F, whatever it takes).

I met with a sports doc yesterday who told me every 40 mile weeks are sufficient according to the latest and greatest, that's what triggered me to write this, because it's true, and the other thing is impact at least every other day will keep the cartilage in your hips, etc. from getting soft and leading to breakdown. Weekend warriors are definitely going to need joint replacements, gotta run 3.5 x weekly, every other day, or 4-6 times.

I will tell my one year old I must have a minimum of 8 hours sleep a night! I’m sure she’ll understand.

Great practical advice. It would be nice to have some videos explaining some of the more scientific aspects of different training sessions if you feel comfortable to do so i.e. why you do tempo runs and interval sessions and how your body responds.

Can someone explain to me what a tempo run is?
