Hi all, Looking for some advice. I'm taking part in the London Marathon in April (first time marathoner although have been doing halves for a couple of years) and am looking at 20 week training plans. I'd really like to come in around 3:50 if possible. Only problem is that I am going on a ski holiday in the first week of March and I'm a bit worried about what to do either side and during the ski week. Every plan I look at seems to say that I need to be doing between 30 and 40 miles during the week I am away which really worries me. I've been skiing 4 times and am at comfortable red run level. From previous trips, my legs are have been in agony at the end of each day skiing and especially in the morning (may be a good way of loosening up!!!!!) although I am 4 stone lighter now than my last trip and much fitter. Should I be taking my kit with me and doing some running before I go out each day? Or after? Can anyone recommend a good training plan that would work well? Has anyone been through the same experience and have any recommendations? Especially the week before, during and after? Does anyone know of any good running routes in Val D'Isere? Am I daft for doing this? All comments well received !
