I hope you may be able to help me,
I'm planning to run the Draycote Water marathon, which is only 9 weeks away, and wondered if anyone had any sensible suggestions to help my preparation in so short a time. I'd quite like to get near the 3.30 mark if I could, but this may be unrealistic.
I'm 38 and have run eight marathons previously, best of 3.15, worst of 5.05 (hungover) and the most recent, the Paris in 3.50, in 2005. I currently run 7 or 8 miles at a time, two or three times a week, and they take me around an hour.
Anyway, my thinking takes me as far as either simply starting a 16 week programme, (such as that found on the RW website) a third of the way in; or, perhaps do the first four weeks and the last five, or first seven and last two ?
Will it even make a difference ?
I'd be grateful for your thoughts and advice.
