Running over 20 miles in 1st marathon training



  • 3 weeks out is plenty of time to recover from a 20+ mile run if you are fit, healthy and have trained up towards that distance.

    I couldn't tell you if it is enough time if you aggravate a niggle / injury that you are carrying. That is a risk that you will need to weigh up for yourself. I spent 3 - 4 weeks before my last marathon with an injury, wondering if I was going to be healed in time - it made for a long 3 weeks. 

  • Woody- lets say it is enough. You've done marathons before - so you have miles in your legs. There's nothing you can do about it now anyway - but I'm sure youll get round. I did when I'd just one 20 in my legs on my first one.
  • Thanks also ran

    I've decided to take it easy and see how I go doing a half next week. I could defer Lonfon but don't really want to. I've hold a charity ill fun for them and font wznt to let them down. Cheers
