Having spent a long time running and preparing for fun runs off the back of regular training, it is important to always be humble to the 'Laws of Running'. Not so many years ago I decided to take my body to the next level and attempt a Marathon. Not so hard, I thought to myself, after alI, I've done heaps of ‘halves' just apply the same sort of tactic to the longer distance. Set a plan, stick to it, and complete the goal. Simple enough. Well no. It seems that running longer distances for the less-than-perfect-distance-running-body-type might have some disastrous consequences.
