Topic - Running help. 0 - marathon in 4 mnths. Doable? Help!

Runningforglory - on 10 Jan 2013
Very stupidly I've said yes to a friend and we are going to try for a marathon in 4 months. I would appreciate any tips on training. If you assume I know nothing you're bigging me up a bit.

Currently my training which is only two weeks old includes hill walking at the weekends where I'm trying to push the distances but only doing 10 -15 miles per trip right now.

Running is going a bit slower. I'm ashamed to admit my first run was less than a mile before intense pain around the midriff and a collapsed lung closed play. After two weeks of running every morning I am now up to around 1.75 miles but very sore in the legs and midriff still and still getting very out of breath.

Has anyone done anything like this in this time scale? Is it doable? Any good tips for a complete beginner on how to structure the training better?
