Would like some advice please......
I would like some suggestions of the best plan to maximise my chances of getting round VLM in 2 weeks. I had 3 months of consistent training up until 4 weeks ago. I was able to jog16 miles fairly comfortably at or below 9m/m pace and was hoping for a stab at a sub 4hr marathon.
Then it all went wrong. I suffered a minor calf tear, and then I went skiing and cracked a rib! I had 4 weeks of doing no running to speak of apart from a couple of miles here and there to see if I could get back to it. Last week, I finally managed to get in 2X5 miles and 1X10 miles.
I am now thinking of doing a 12 miler this week, a 16 miler at the weekend and then just a short run next week. Is this the best idea? I am resigned to the fact that I will have to walk the end part of the race, as I have missed some key runs, but I want to get to the start line with the best possible chance of jogging as far as possible.
Any advise on either race tactics, or plan for next 2 weeks would be much appreciated.
