I usually make Saturday's run half the distance of Sunday. This was not based in any science, but I started this when training for the Goofy Challenge and have just continued to do it.
My loose plan over the next 8 months is to train for Tokyo in Feb with the usual speed work, some hill work, but add one day of cycling/stairmaster and add 2 afternoon sessions of 5-8 miles on the AlterG treadmill. Then, after Tokyo leading up to Comrades is to decrease the speed work dramatically (maybe one every 2 weeks), increase the hill training significantly, increases distances as per the training plan, and continue to do the cycling/stairmaster day plus there 2 extra afternoon sessions.
That's the plan anyway. Also got to find a way to increase my hemoglobin (I'm a tad anemic) legally
