Running a marathon has been a goal of mine for some time now. After being inspired by folks like Carmeron Hanes and Courtney Dauwaulter, I decided its time to train for a marathon. No better time to take action than the present, right? Here's where I am: I run 2-3 times a week. On a 4-5 mile run, I can keep a 7 or 8 minute/mile pace. Over the past few weeks, I've been trying to increase my distances. I've gone on a few longer runs on Saturday/Sunday mornings. So far, I've done four 10-mile runs (1 lap around the trail on town lake in Austin), and I also completed one 20-mile run (two laps around the trail). Here's my issue on these longer runs: I tend to feel the urge to stop and walk every few minutes when running longer distances and anytime I'm going for longer than like 45 minutes. Maybe I'll run for 5 mins then stop and walk for 1 or 2 minutes. I know that it takes time to get in shape to do longer distances, but I really want to work toward getting better at endurance during longer distances. I try to lift weights in the gym a few times a week as well. What should I do to improve my longer runs? Is this a typical urge of newer/inexperienced runners to stop and walk occasionally when they are new to running? I'd like to reach a point where I can go at one consistent pace for 3+ hours. This is my first time training for a marathon, and I'm really doing it all by myself so any general knowledge or experiences related to running your first marathon would be much appreciated. Thanks everyone :)
