I'm entered for Liverpool marathon in October so have downloaded a training schedule from the Training section for a 3:45. The time is optimistic on my part (especially for a first marathon), but I would love to do a sub 4 marathon and so I thought I may as well start training properly for it!
My concern is that the mileage (weekly) is lower than I'm currently doing and I'm a bit worried about dropping this down too far ready for such a long run! Also the schedule is for 5 runs a week and currently I find that 6 is about right for me.
I completed my first half at Reading in 1:44 and have tend to run about 35 miles a week which feels about right for me. Can anyone recommend a plan as I'm at a loss whether to completely change my running and follow the downloaded plan or whether I should just do as I'm told and follow it as the people writing these things know what they're doing!
