To run another marathon or not this year? Advice please?

Given there's a bloke who's done 100 in 100 days I think you will probably be OK to do another one within 6 months.

Ooops, apologies, just looked in the cupboard and I appear to have mixed up Lunar Elites with Zoom Elites. I blame Nike's naming policy.

The Lunar Elite are the ones my comments refer to, they are from last year so may have been upgraded.

Phil Pub, the Zoom Elite 5 sound interesting, will have to check them out, thanks for the tip.

The Zoom Elite are marketed as racing shoes, I found them to be stiff, clumpy and heavy... Lunar Racers would be a much better choice if you want Nike.

Running without Fuel??

All my 20s last year were water only, anything further a few jelly babies for pyschological purposes. Occasionally take out home made sports drink, lime juice, pinch salt, couple teaspoons sugar, water. Happily do up to 18 with no liquids if it's cool.

I think there's a big SUGAR INDUSTRY conspiracy going on.

All that Crossfit/HIT seems to be the rage at the moment. And Zumba.

Weigh training & running

Are you running on the same day as your weights? I've found that you can happily combine 3-4 runs with 2-3 weights sessions a week without negatively affecting either. That's not to say you wouldn't get better results focusing on one or the other.

I tend to do weights and running on separate days. If I'm marathon training I will drop weights to once a week which is enough to maintain strength.

If you're coming back from illness/injury your first priority should be not to overdo things though!

Good luck.

Is 4 weeks enough time to wear in new trainers for the London Marathon?

Don't worry, 4 weeks is plenty of time to wear in. I ran about 20 miles before race day in my last marathon shoes and had no problems.

However, as someone who used to wear Pegasus a lot, Nike seem to change the fit and feel of them every year. They've gone downhill since 25 in my opinion and I find them almost unwearable now.
Although I have been transitioning to more minimal shoes over that time which might have something to do with it.

Incorrect shoes

If you put stability shoes on accidentally you will know about it, they will feel awful if you don't need them.
