I recently conpleted my first marathon (The Great Clarendon), which i enjoyed thoroughly and after 6 months of training i can say im hooked on running (id never ran before this). The Clarendon marathon was full-on cross country and so i now want to tackle a road marathon as my next goal.
Ive signed up for Edinburgh on May 11th which im really looking forward to, its supposed to be quite a fast course so ive been adventurous and chosen a target of 3hrs30mins. Ive got a 12week training plan to follow as the build up to the race which im happy with but i would like some advice on how to train between now and the start of my 12week build up to race day. I want to maintain my current fitness levels but am unsure of how i should be training in terms of weekly distance, individual long runs, session/fartlek training and strength training. Do i need to keep up all this inbetween races or will running 5miles a day with a 20mile run on a sunday suffice?
Any advice would be really appreciated.
