Currently I am cycling to work, generally 67 miles for the week.
I am also training for an October marathon. I am averaging 35-40 miles per week at the moment. Do I maintain both or cut back on the cycling? My cycling starts off with a moderate first phase and then speeds up once I hit the dreaded blue cycle lane in south London. Should I be cycling hard or easy. The marathon trianing consists of a long run and threshold intervals amongst other easy running and I don't really want to change this structure.
The reason I am asking is that I am unsure whether the cycling is counter-productive or will support the training. My long runs don't quite have the zip in them towards the end as they did in my first marathon back in April. Any advice would be gratefully received, thanks.
