London this weekend, followed by Halstead on 12th May.....
My target has always been London so all being well I'll be looking to post a (relatively) good time there, however as much as I appreciate I won't run as quickly at Halstead, (if nothing else because the course isn't as flat!) what would you do training-wise in the three weeks between?
Just easy runs during the week with a bit more distance at the weekend? Is there any benefit from running at MP or doing any effort/speed sessions? I'm guessing not as I can't imagine anything done in the three weeks will increase my fitness; Is it more a case of doing stuff to aid recovery?
Left London last night full of excitement, arrived to JFK to find race cancelled.
Not wanting to waste 16 weeks of training I'll look to do another 26.2
My question is, bearing in mind I've been tapering for three weeks, and will not be able to get out running for another 10 days, what date (Sun 17th, Sun 25th, Sun 2nd etc) should I reschedule for, and how should I train between now and then?
I'm looking at 2:50 target if that makes a difference
