    how much training have you done for this ? have you ran any ultra marathons to condition your body over time . what is your resting heartrate at so your body recovers a lot quicker each week ? you probably should finish with your last marathon in australia, for publicity reasons and people could train and run your last marathon with you.

    you should finish with the melbourne marathon in october or the cadbury marathon in tasmania on the 2nd week in january. keith fisher geelong victoria.

    Thanks Keith, I think I should finish in Australia too. Only thing is, I’m determined to finish within the calendar year, 2010. That’ll make it an even 52 weeks and I guess that’s the point of the adventure. Ideally I’d run a marathon in Melbourne to finish, but the Melbourne Marathon is too early, so won’t suit.

    The idea has been floated that we create a marathon for New Year’s Eve in Melbourne, 2010. I’d have that as my last run and if we could get 1000 entries, I think it would equate to a legitimate event. Then we’d have a big party to celebrate! It’s pretty pie in the sky at the moment, but this whole thing is implausible, so why count that out??

    As for your other questions, I have run the Comrades 90km marathon in South Africa, which took a lot of long training sessions to learn to cope with that kind of distance. I have a low resting heart rate of around 53bpm, but for some strange reason I have a high max heart rate – around 200+. I guess everyone is different.

    Thanks for your questions and I hope you stay tuned to see how it all turns out!
