I have signed up for the Richmond Marathon on 5th May. While I am training seriously, my goal isnt a specific time but to run it comfortably so I can enjoy the evening afterwards. Previous to this, I have run one marathon (Taunton in 2011) as well as a far few halfs. I go out at least 4 times a week, and my longest recent run was 21 miles on Monday, which went very encouragingly.
I am now thinking about taking a week off training to go cycling at the end of March. This would leave me with 5 weeks to race day. What do people think about this? Can you give me any tips/reassurance?
