Berlin is a great marathon and nice and flat so quite tempting to go for a PB! I'm doing a marathon the weekend before and a bit worried that's too close but will force myself to take it easy so hopefully it won't leave me fatigued!
What sort of mileage are people doing for their long runs now? I've been alternating hard and easy weeks, with hard weeks now up to 26 miles this weekend. Seems weird to be running a marathon without having tapered for 3 weeks first but am looking forward to it (sort of).
Hi all, just wondering if anyone knows of any decent training plans for this? I've run a few marathons before so wondering if I should just tweak my usual training plan and add a few miles on to the longer runs.
Hi all, glad to have found the Boston forum! Getting really excited now but also a bit nervous about the hilliness of the course as where I live is pancake flat. I've been doing my longer runs on hillier routes, but does anyone have any advice about how bad the Boston hills are? Not sure whether to swap my weekly speed sessions for some hill repeats.
