Just finished my 2nd half marathon, taking 3 minutes off my personal best and as a relatively new runner have decided a marathon is the next step. Been looking around for a good one and looks like i am running out of time to train as most of them happen in the spring. I do not want to wait another year to enter one. Is 8 weeks enough time to train for a marathon, i regularly do 10+ training miles on a sunday. Longest run so far is 15 miles, I am averaging 25-30 miles a week at the moment.
I would welcome any advice, (also i find after 12 miles or so water isn't enough to keep me going, i have tried gels, but not a big fan, any alternatives?)
