Thanks everyone for the advice, but I am still unsure- as I don't want to be ungrateful and let anyone down - and also if I run two in one week surley I will eb able to generate some publicty / more interest and thus get more money for said charities? I ahve alwasy wanted to run London marathon but I have agreed to Brighton, and as stated won't go back on that - so if I only do one it will be Brighton, but I don't want to regret turning down London??
My training plan was to start by doing x3 5k a week and x1 10k and then take it up to x3 10k and x1 15-20k a week before christmas, and then hopefully build it up from there. But I just have no real idea of how my body will take it - when I ran 10k in a race for life last month I didn't ache or have any side effects, but then I took it slow finishing in an hour and 10mins... Part of me thinks it would be so awesome to do it but then I don't want to just be a foolish idiot who ends up screwing them both up?
