FLM training schedules

I did a half marathon last April (2 hrs 13 mins) and have got a place for London marathon 2012.

As the marathon is just over 24 weeks away I looked at the beginners and intermediate 24 week training schedules on the London marathon's website.

The longest training run seems to be 130 minutes for the intermediate plan. Given that I run approx 10 minute miles does this seem right? I thought I would need to run at least 20 miles prior to attempting a marathon.

If I run for 130 minutes this would only get me say 15 miles.

Any advice appreciated.

Hi HazLot

Look at the Runners World ultimate schedules, they're much better and they give really good extra info - just pick one close to the time you hope to finish in.  Looking at your half time I would go for sub 4.30 plan and adjust the paces to suit.  Also remember that's its only a guide - they can  be adapted.  That's what I do and it does work so all the best.
