Doing London Marathon which will be my 4th in 4 years. I follow a 12 week program but have decided to use the weeks leading up to that to prepare my body.
What's the best thing to do (other than core work, as I already do 2 Pilates classes a week)? Hill work, speed work, quad strengthening?
If you're not already there, get used to the training load (ie get up to the 25 miles/week) My marathon plan is more like 50 mpw, and I'm building up to it (with lots of slow miles) so that at least the volume of training won't be much of a shock.
In other words - what cougie said!
