I did the London Marathon this year and it was my first marathon. I enjoyed the experience. I have Ironman as my longer term goal but I want to knock a significant time off my marathon time while I have a running focus.
I decided I would run 6 days a week to give myself the best chance of improving my running times as much as possible before I move on to multi-discipline training. I enjoy running so it's not really a chore but every time I see a person riding their bike there is a small feeling of jealousy
Is this sacrifice going to make a difference? Does running 6 days vs running 4 days and riding 2 days mean that I am going to improve my running more quickly? I thought so, which is why I have started doing it, but I read a couple of things more recently that lead me to question whether I am doing the right thing. Keen to hear opinions.
