I'm training for my first marathon and am following the Hal Hilgdon Novice 2 programme. I've already started the programme and by the time Xmas comes around, I will be repeating some earlier weeks, bringing me back up to week 7 again. I've done some calcs, because I obviously have too much time on my hands today at work! And on Xmas day, I should be running a 7 miler. This is only an hour's cardio, but with 2 kids indoors and having to get glammed up, would it matter if I did my 7 miler on Xmas eve instead and missing a weekly session? I don't really want time away from the kids on Xmas day and am wondering if it's that big of a deal, even though I am training for the London Marathon? I will have under my belt a 15 miler and I would have been following a marathon training programme for about 10 weeks. If I do manage to get out, then great, but the kids come first on Xmas day, not me! Thanks for your replies.
