I've just run Loch Ness and Chester in a week off a three month injury lay-off, yes it's possible but still hard work!! as long as you've got the miles in the bag beforehand
I think this is the difference for the OP. She's a newbie - never run more than 10km and has 5 months of training to get marathon ready and get the mileage in her legs.
A runner over here just completed 7 marathons in 7 consecutive days!! BUT she is an experienced runner and completed all of them in under 4 hours running for Headway charity. If you're a newbie I suggest one marathon in a week is enough and the chances are you'll enjoy it more, rather than running one and dreading (possibly) the fact you have another one to do soon!
Whatever you choose though think of your body and health first - raising money for charity if a fantastic thing to do but not if you end up seriously injured......
Good luck though!
Thank you all for your help, you have all been great!
I've decided to just to the Brighton marathon for now, maybe one day I'll do two in a week but not just yet!
Thanks once again for your help, it has been really useful
hi jane not sure if you are stil following the thread but i am doing the same and ran brighton yesterday ..not pb but gor round which i think will be the main aim for london. my toes were the problem agony. I am not a rel runner but have done two 20 milers in a week which i must say wa easier. i must say the thought of going through it again on sunday terrifies me today but come sunday hope i will feel differently.
