I have had a fairly successful summer of running in which I ran my first marathon (Cardiff: 3:50) and had a 1/2 marathon PB (GNR: 1:37). As well as this I took part in a triathlon and really enjoyed it.
Does anyone have any advice as to whether its possible to combine a winter of training for the FLM (Hopefully I will get in) with training for a summer (post FLM) of taking part in a few olympic distance triathlons (and maybe even a long course event). Will I be able to cross train my way to a better time in the marathon or is the only way to a sub 3:40 marathon a winter of pounding out the miles which would leave me ill-equipped for a tri.
Advice please! Otherwise I will just toss a coin....!
