well, is it?
Hi, I'm doing Halstead Marathon on May 12th, and quite keen on doing the Bupa10k again, but its only 2 weeks after. Usually after a marathon I've over-rested whilst i figure out what my next goal will be - just wondering whether getting out for a 10k 2 weeks later will be detrimental/ not really matter, but dont think i'll get a good time, or go ahead, you'll get ur best time yet!
When I did the same race following the London Marathon- so a month later, I managed to set my best 5k in the second half- the first was slow as i ran with some friends, but then ditched them!
Depends how well you recover ? Youve run marathons before - so how do you feel 2 weeks after ? Some people will be fine, some not.
i'm certain you'd be capable of completing the course, but my guess is that you might be short of a PB. But then, who knows; a good rest after your marathon might act like a taper for your 10k and you might storm around. I don't think there's any harm booking it in and either race it or just enjoy the day out, depending how you feel on the day.
Well I usually have felt fine after a few days, though after Berlin I did have a bit of swelling in my ankle for abit longer, though I attribute that to the flat/downhill course.
that being said, I never tried it before. I'll give it a go then. Thanks
I did my 10k PB after a 20 mile training run the previous day. I ws training for my first marathon at the time.
