Congrats SVC on finishing your first Full Marathon!!! Really cool to get that first one under your belt. Quick recovery! It took us about 3 full weeks to get our complete strength back. They say the key to marathon running is MATCHING your two halves. Like 2:25 and 2:25 would break the 5 hour mark next time. Good going and good luck!

Re-reading marathon advice that was posted here.

Started with the goal 11:30 mile pace (since my training was so limited - my longest pre-marathon jog was only 8 miles). Was actually on a 11:00 pace the first 10k without trying, just a nice easy jog. Hit the half at 2:28 and then I messed up. Walked for 1 mile and that was my undoing. So hard to get back into the jog pace. At the 17 mile did the same thing (walked a mile). After that I limited my walks to just at the water stations. The last quarter mile was probably the hardest - I thought we were heading straight to the finish (I could see the tents as we came into the base) but instead we had to jog around a big grass area (like running around a track).

Ended up with 5:22 (not bad for first marathon with minimal training). Difficult walking down stairs that afternoon. Went for a little walk through the woods behind our friend's home (maybe couple miles). A little sore the next morning going down the stairs again. And after that, nothing. Not sore. Went back to Crossfit on Tuesday. Very surprised at not being sore.

strained something ever so slightly getting in the seated press. not enough to hurt but enough to annoy.

also the directives for the 10K squats challenge I'm currently working are a bit erratic. how do they go from 4 x 50 to 5 x 30 to 6 x 20?

geez.

I did 5 x 20 & 1 x 60.

cause I just *know* they're gonna build it back up to sets of 50.

No, I've not done a full marathon. I occasionally will do a 5k go a cause. I'm not a runner :). I lift.

Old fashion lifting, meaning heavy compound exercies is the only way to go I say. Deadlifts, squats, clean and press and some kind of bench for chest. Mental toughness that comes from having a high pain threshold developed from weight lifting is probably what got your husband to the finish line. I still start out to quick in the first half of the marathon. Shit can't hold it back and I fade in the second half. I got way out in front of the 3:30 pacer, basically with the 3:15 guy, hoping to give myself some cushion, but it was burning me up and by the 19th mile 3:30 pacer passed me and I had to start walking. Finished in 3:58, but was pure torture. Shit, had to be pretty much carried to the med tent. Dehydrated and was totally starving! STARVING. Kinda freaky, my whole body felt like it was shutting down after I crossed the finish line. Will eat rice and potatoes for breakfast NOT just cereal next year and will not start out too fast. Was the total experience fun? Yes! Have you ever did one SED?

It all depends on the individual, Racer. Hubby ran the several 13.1 & 2 - 26.2. His first 26.2 was 5 hours 34 mins [NJ]. He's an old fashion lifter. He does not get into all the new things in the fitness world. And has to work on flexibility. He was ver sore the first year [even though he prepped for almost a year].

Second time around his time was less by 4 mins. His prep a mere 3 months. Zero soreness.

Interestingly, he ran a 13.1 about a year ago for which he prepped quite a bit. And was nursing majorly sore calves.

As a serious weight lifter, you will have to resist the urge to want to go out and kick it's ass, especially if they are playing Rocky theme song type stuff at the starting line. Matching your 2 halves is key! Hanging with the 4:45 pacer would be good thing the first half. Your body is obviously use to a lot of physical trauma and you will have to rely on this "Ace up your sleeve" come mile 17 when the real fight starts! This is when you can make your move to go catch the 4:30 pacer if you have enough gas and flat-out meaness left in ya! LoL Funny, but true. A full marathon is special and real feather in your cap! Very Fun too!! in a crazy sorta way. Pic is of Janet crossing the finish line at the 4:48 mark this past January in the Charleston Marathon at age 54.

Thank you Sed4Two.

Yes, 5 hours is about where I'm thinking (my first 1/2 was 2:12)...right now my plan is start with the first 10k slow steady, walk while drinking at a few of the water stations, then re-evaluate. Aiming for 10-11 min/mile pace. Keep the heart rate modest. Legs don't get as tired as my shoulders (I tend to hold them too tight when jogging).

Since I'm really not a runner, this will be a huge challenge for me.

Mrs. SVC. Your first marathon will feel like pure insanity as well. A person's body is simply not use to working like that for 5 hours. 5 hours would be a good goal for your first one. Good luck!
