I have entered the Manchester full marathon on 28/04/13, this will be my first ever marathon. As a local to Sheffield, I am also considering entering their half marathon on 12/05/13, this is 2 weeks after Manchester.
Ideally, if I was to enter Sheffield, I would like to be able to run my best time as apposed to 'just getting around'. So, is 2 weeks sufficient time for me to recover and enter the Sheffield half marathon ? My training plan only (at the moment) includes the build up and taper for the full marathon; I have not yet investigated what I need to do to receover from a full marathon and how to build back up my milegae following that event. My current mileage is about 45 per week but I will be increasing that over the forthcoming weeks as I will also be running the Ladybower 50 (miles) next October.
Any advice on my training plan would be greatly appreciated as I am not sure if it would be best to train for the next event only or if I could/should also consider the longer term and plan and start training for the LB now or wait ?
