London and Edinburgh marathons

Is anybody else out there doing both the London and Edinburgh marathons?

I was just wondering what sort of a training programe people will be doing inbetween these events as there is only six weeks betwween each race.

would be interested to know.


  • Hail Hail

    I'm doing both, but I've got an endurance event before FLM, so it is just going to be a training run with no target in mind.  Following FLM, I'll take a week off, then comeback with 40M, 50M, 60M weeks, with increased speedwork before a 10 day taper before a 2.40 attempt at Edinburgh.  Each of the 3/4 weeks where I'm training will have a long run of between 18M and 22M, with shorter faster stuff including lots of interval reps.

    Hope this helps.

  • Thanks running bhoy

    You sound a lot faster and fitter than me.I hope to finish both marathons in about 4-41/2 hours.I will keep up the weekend long runs (20m) going with  short faster runs during the week (well fast for me)
