I'm still waiting to hear from the London Marathon organisers as to whether I've been successful or not in the ballot. I'm surprised that I've still not heard, a week after people started to get the good/bad news. The organisers are not replying to any queries until next week. Clearly I can just sit impatiently and wait until next week, but wondered if anyone else has had a similar experience
I'm putting my training plan together for the Dublin Marathon in October and want to have a good mix of exercises. Previously I had been running 4-5 days a week, but experienced a variety of overuse injuries.
My plan for the Marathon is to include a mix of road running, interval training on a grass track, cycling and gym work. An issue this raises is the number of days in the week. Hence my question: Can cycling to and from work twice a week be considered as active recovery? For info, my cycle ride is relatively flat on a good road and is a steady round trip of 38k.
