OK, but what about the flip side of this? There are people that do several marathons in succession, whether its a day apart or week apart (usually those used to the ultra's etc). How on earth do they manage to do this?
I ask because I have a little 'challenge' to achieve - I just did manchester marathon on Sunday, but I have also entered Leeds half marathon, i.e. the half is 2 weeks after the full.
I am going to see if I can do a couple of miles tomorrow - or the day after - my body will tell me! I am doing plenty of recovery eating, having ice baths, and walking around plenty (my jobs involves plenty of moving around - electrician).
So what tips do you have to ensure that I can complete the Leeds half? Hoping that someone has done this, so can pass on their experience of how to do it best. Not looking for a PB at Leeds, just a steady away completion and another medal for the collection.
