I am hoping to do the Bournemouth marathon on 6th October. However, we are going on holiday on 2nd September, which is the week before my longest run is due (and I start my taper). My husband is an understanding man, but maintaining a 40 mile week whilst on holiday is not a possibility! Do you think this is going to mess up my fitness for my longest run and/or the marathon? Suggestions please!
I would do the longrun before you go.even if it means doing it at night to fit it in.....then a couple of shorter ones on holiday.then do the other long run when you get back.....sorted......
or get ready in your running clothes for the journey.....get your hubby to drop you off 20 miles short of your destination with a map......you can run the last 20 miles whilst he umpacks and sort everything out..both then have a drink to relax
Thanks guys! Sorry for the delay in replying.
Seren Nos - LOL! Don't know which is funnier me hightailing in through greece to our hotel, or the idea that my husband would have unpacked when I got there!
Millsy1977 - thank you for your advice and well done for your PB. Looks like I'll be doing my long run before I go!
nce: Wow - you are really motivated!
I will certainly be doing some running while I am away, but we are in a "self-contained" resort and I am not sure how much distance I am going to be able to get without doing endless laps (yawn). Not 100% comfortable about leaving the resort and running through unchartered territory on my own on a dark morning (no disrespect to the lovely Greek people). My kids are 2 and 4 so are usually up very early - I would have to be running around 4.00am to get a 2 hour run in!
Nevertheless, I appreciate your advice and if there is a way for me to get some miles up I will be doing my best!!
