I wanted to see if I could get some opinions from you ladies.
I am training for my first full marathon which will be December 5. I am using Hal Higdon's plan, and I began this week even though it's a couple weeks early. I wanted to have room to wiggle in case of illness/injury/life.
My questions is whether I should do the novice or intermediate plan. The intermediate plan says it is geared to people who have already done a marathon and want to improve, but looking at it, I feel I can handle it.
I have been running for 2 years, and have done multiple half-marathons. The first "long run" is 8 miles and I already regularly run that.
On the other hand, I am not going for a time goal since it is my first, so the novice would be fine and less time consuming. But, being me, I still want to do the best I can.
Thanks for any advice!
