So i'm training for my first marathon atm. I have to admit I'm not a triathlete (I struggle on a bike!) but I am a swimmer, and so train with my club a few times a week.
Whilst training for the marathon, I'm only doing 2-3 swimming sessions a week, but I just wondered if I could substitue running for this swimming? I'm doing 3 runs a week (going to try and increase this to 4) - doing the long run at weekends, a short fast run, and a middle distance one. Is this enough running? I'm just nervous of over training as I tend to be fairly injury prone! I'm a few months into training (doing a 15miler long run this weekend)m and have 4 months left, and my pace has been pretty good and on target. Just not sure if i'm doing enough running - can the swimming count as a session!?
Thanks and sorry for the babble!
