London marathon followed by St Illtyds 50k ultra

Hi advice please.
I entered my first ultra before being notified I had been selected for London. As the ultra is a week after London I was not going to do it. However now having second thoughts. Any advice on if this is achievable much appreciated.


    Dean - depends on your running history and experience but it's perfectly doable.   

    Focus on recovery from London, eat, rehydrate ASAP and gentle recovery run 3 to 5 miles on the Monday morning to get the muscles working again.  Short easy runs for the rest of the week, take 2 rest days before the ultra if you wish, sleep and eat well and you'll be fine.
