I've got my eye on 3 long races next year. Liverpool marathon on Jan 1st, Manchester marathon on 28th April and Ladybower 50 (my first Ultra) on Sept 22nd. I'm unsure if I can fit the training in for all 3.
What I'd like to do is run Liverpool as a training run, Manchester as a hard run and try a get back to training ASAP for the Ladybower.
Is it possible to run a slow marathon as a training run without recovery eating into the time I should be training for Manchester and also to train for an Ultra on just under 4 months training after running a hard marathon (I know from experience that I will lose 3-4 weeks to recovery after running Manchester hard).
Another option is to run L:iverpool hard, Manchester as a training run for the Ladybower but I'm not keen on doing this as I havn't really got enough time to get into PB shape for Liverpool wheras I have for Manchester.
Sorry for the lengthy post, thanks for reading. Any thoughts/ advice would be appreciated.
