I am doing the Brighton marathon in April- first marathon, very nervous! I was wondering if I could ask for your expertise!..
Have been running since last summer and I am following a 16-week training programme and the longest run is 18 miles (which is run twice- I'm currently on 16). This seems a little low, and am considering up-ing to 20, but also aware this would be 2 weeks pre-marathon and not sure if this would be a good idea?
I've had an injury over dec/jan and my physio has advised if I start to get any issues to reduce the training runs, as it would be better to do this than to develop knee problem/shin splints etc. a couple of weeks before. Does seem like a bit of a no win situation- I'm worried I won't be able to finish if I don't do all the runs, but equally don't want to get injured! My aim is to finish rather than to get a great time, I'm anticipating it to be 4.30-5h.
Does anyone have any experience or words of wisdom they could share with me please?
