So I have been training hard since ealry last year but had 2months of not training recently due to runners knee just at the most critical point of training. I started from nothing and last weekend I did my longest run so far of 12 miles.
My plan is to next weekend run 14miles and the weeknd after 16miles and then to have 3 weeks tapering. I know it's not ideal but I am making the best of what I have got.
I would just like some general advise on if people think this is a good plan or if I should try fit in 3 long runs/increase the distance more? I am warey of not agrivating my runners knee by pushing it just before the marathon.
I really want to do the marathon in 5hours. I am a pretty slow/ploddy runner so this would be a huge acheivement for me!
