I'm doing the Brighton marathon in April and a month or so before, I'm doing the Wilmslow Half. It'll be my first marathon and my second half.
I got an invite on a week's skiing trip this morning, but I'd get back the week before the half (the date is non-negotiable, as there's a fairly big group going). I'm a bit worried about how this might throw my training out for the marathon. I'd miss a 19 miler and a 20 miler although I think I could still fit in the 20 miler the day after I return, and the 19 before I go. I'm also planning on doing a 19 miler and a 20 in February, but obviously I wouldn't be running at all during the week I'm away
Obviously ignoring the potential for injury that skiing might cause (I have skied a fair bit before, and have never injured myself), is it a really bad idea to go? I'm inexperienced at training for races of this distance, so I'd appreciate the advice!
