Peoples feed back on here becuase I'm in unchartered territory as far as running a marathon in spring, autumn and then spring again.
10 weeks based on your previous training is easily enough IMO FWIW... I mean you're hardly starting from scratch have done long runs etc and you finished last year in good shape? Rest up for a few days... infact even if you had a week, it'll make no difference whatsoever... I mean if you look at me, basically nothing from October 17th until the 1st January... did 197 miles January, hopefully 200 this month and I'm targetting Lochaber Marathon 10th April... and I'll be in shape... ok, not the best shape you could be in but certainly back in PB shape. Depends what time you want, I think Haille's record might be out of you rreach fella
40 miles clocked this week, but including 26 at mp or faster. Very unusual for me, and not what the professionals would be doing at this point for a Spring marathon, but wtf... ...s'posed to be fun isn't it?
hahaha, I knew our Sunday evening conversation would push you a little harder, you can't have Puglet slipping in under your PB can you hahaha. And to light a candle, I've just entered Snowdon Marathon... so you've got to put some effort in now... I reckon 20 days receovery from Chester Marathon is easily enough hahaha!
