Magic/Pete.......interesting article. It's pretty much how my training has gone since I focused purely on the marathon last September. I'm currently going through a really bad patch........probably as a result of the 2 x half maras and the 20 mile road race. Fatigue has set in and I'm struggling to get quality sessions in. I adjust daily to take account of my tiredness.
I'm investing in weekly massage for the next few weeks......it's a big help and really puts the spring back into my run.
Hopefully, I'll start to feel better next week and be raring to go come race day.
