I am trying to choose my next spring marathon and nothing is really appealing.
I have a vague goal of completing all the Major’s with only Tokyo and Boston left but I have some way to go (if ever) before I am fast enough to qualify.
Then the London to Brighton Ultra popped up on my MyFace page and I am interested in this as a challenge.
My question is how will Ultra training effect my marathon goals? Will all the long slow miles help with my aerobic base and help me reach my goals, or will my speed suffer?
My last training plan was from the Advanced Marathoning book, up to 55 to 70 mile plan.
