I have run a fair few half marathons in the past (current PB is 1.41), and I am 10 weeks into a specific training plan (asics plan) for a half marathon on 07 October in which is aiming to get me a sub 1.35. At this time I am running 3-4 times per week totalling 25 miles per week with a mixture of speed and endurance work.
I am considering running a Marathon on 18 November, which is 6 weeks after the half. I have run a marathon before (April 2012 in 3.46) so I'm not making a complete jump into the unknown. What I was wondering was whether I should start a marathon training plan now, and factor in the half as part of the training. Or continue with my plan for the 07 October, then just gently build the mileage in the 3-4 weeks before allowing for 2 weeks of tapering.
Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.
