Our expert says:
Training for long distance running is a very gradual process and I would not advise you to run too far too soon. Add a few kilometres per week to your training schedule and rather aim for a race that is later in the year. Yes, it might be a shock to your heart if you suddenly run such a distance without being used to it. You will probably injure quite a few muscles in the process as well. Rather do it in the right way and you might turn into an athlete! Good luck.
