What do you think? Gentle 20 minute swim or 20 mimute run, day before a marathon.
Last run was 2.5 mile slow one on thursday.
(also - I cycle to work).
I alway go for a light jog the day before a Mara 20-25 mins max
very gentle splash in a pool sounds good for me, relaxing and not using any of you legs reserves.
I like swimming as I find it relaxes my legs and I run better after swimming.
I also drop the cycle commute - yikes, bit late to advise for that now. I never cycle the week before a key race.
