All this talk of 20 vs 23 vs 26 mile runs and nobody's said 'horses for courses' yet. Or something about how many ways cats can be skinned.
Most folks in here have run at least one marathon well, so by definition their training for it was OK. Could improvements be made by changing things? Possibly, but I'm with CW in not wanting to overhaul anything at this stage. FWIW, I go for the 20-22 mile options, but starting earlier than most do. And I'll do intervals, which some would describe as speed work. but they're half mile ones rather than short fast stuff.
