I've had a great 12 months of training, getting PBs across the board and, last week, running my first marathon.
The thing is, I signed up to a half marathon on 17th November... Yup - 8 weeks after the marathon, and in 6 and a half weeks time. My club runs the race every year, so I signed up for fun, rather than for a PB, but I would really like to see what kind of time I can muster off the back of my marathon training.
The question is, how does one go about training for a half so soon after a marathon?
I've taken a full week off (except for a bit of cycling), went for my first run on the Monday of the second week (3 slow miles), plan another easy few miles tomorrow (Wednesday), and again on Saturday... But then what?
Any suggestions for training sessions, frequency, mileage, general anecdotal advice would be appreciated.
