Can anyone advise me how to deal with a four week break in training (for the VLM) from late Jan to mid Feb? It's my first marathon, although I've done four Half-Ms. I'll be running about 16 miles on a long run by the time my holiday comes round and if I can maintain that distance through the break, I should still be on schedule. But I'm worried about losing form. Four weeks is a long time. I can run occasionally - maybe once a week - when away, but it's a camping/kayaking/boating trip and opportunities for distance will not be there. How can I maximise the benefit of these occasional, shorter runs in order to keep as much fitness as possible?
