I’m doing the Vancouver marathon next year and aiming for under 3:30, going to make the most of the trip and have a three-week holiday. I want the run to be at the beginning of my holiday (I think), so that I don't have to worry about what I'm eating, drinking and so on. So what I would like to know is;
"How long will it take for my body to recover from the Jet lag?
Can I shorten the amount of time, with certain preparations?
Where would you recommend I place race day (Sunday 4th May) in my three-week holiday?
Has anyone done the Vancouver Marathon that might be able to offer me some advice?
