Running Your First 42km or 21km
To help you along, and for those of you that may be running your first 42km, this is my 4-months plan to run a marathon. With almost 8 months from now until race day, you can enjoy the luxury of building your base fitness the first two months and then move along the 4-months plan and stretch it to 6-months.

For those of you attempting the 21km as part of your graduation from the 10km runs, the plan can be applied to you as well, only differences is the level of mileage and intensity. My personal advice is to train as if you are running a marathon, and ace that 21km run easy-peasy.

Head over to the articles below, which I've written over the past year to help you along.

4-Month plan to run your first 42km

I will be running the SCKLM 2014 in the usual 42km segment this time, which is approximately 2-weeks after my Ironman Langkawi (which I hope to finish strong). Don't forget to sign up for SCKLM!
