I've signed up for the Sunderland Marathon and the Edinburgh Marathon.
I'm looking for do a sub3:30 in the Sunderland and a sub 3:15 in the Edinburgh.
I'm struggling to formulate a clear training plan. I've already done 4 weeks pretraining (6 days, 2 lsr of 12m&16). How to I taper off for both races while still having time to do enough LSRs of up to 20m? Maybe I don't taper off for Sunderland?
Is anyone else facing a similar dilemma or have any advice?
