I'm new to this forum and just wondered if anyone can give me some advice. I'm currently training for Edinburgh marathon in late May and touch wood all is going well. My dilemna is that I'm also planning to do my hometown 1/2marathon which I do every year and it falls the weekend after Edinburgh.
I know this is by no means ideal and that a longer rest period is the norm but any thoughts/experience on whether it's possible to do such a thing and get a decent level of performance only a week after a marathon race? Also, how I should deal with the week in between in terms of recovery/training?
