Hi all ,I will keep it brief ,I am running Edinburgh in the spring as my 3rd marathon but with it being a late marathon it is only 20 weeks before the Frankfurt marathon .with this in mind I don't want a plan that starts off nice and steady and builds up as I will have a good endurance base ,should I focus on different areas such as core work or just stick to a regular plan that takes me to sub 3

How much recovery time do you genuinely need to recover from Edinburgh? How well have you recovered previously? pfitzinger and Douglas "Advanced Marathoning" is a good read, and may help to answer your questions. They include 4 to 5 week post race plans that you could look at, and may help to ensure you recover completely before hitting the next training cycle

thanks for the info ,i will certainly need 3-4 weeks recovery with no running for about 2 weeks immediately after ,i will look at the advanced marothoning book
