Running a marathon is something most people will never achieve, but for those starting out as runners, a great initial goal to aim for is to try to run the length of a marathon over a two week period. A marathon is 26.2 miles or 42.2km. How you break this down is up to you - you could do two 5km routes and one longer 11km run per week, or four runs of just over 5km, or perhaps you'd prefer to run every day, in which case your routes would only need to be 3km.

Tony A Week 1, Day 2 - 5.9 miserable, windswept, grey km around Albert Park lake. Ugh.
Tony A I got through Week 1 feeling good...then it fell apart on Week 2 with too much on and not enough time to run properly. So - back to the drawing board again!
Week 1, Day 1 - 5.4km running around Melbourne's Royal Botanical Gardens before work. Lovely.

Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
