in need of some urgent advice. After starting my training early for Belfast marathon on May Day i was struck down with flu and as a result missed out on 4 weeks of training!!
now i am back into workout and running mode, but my difficulty is i dont know if i can manage to complete it in 4hr 30. my last BCM race i did it in 4h42. I have a good base and doesnt take me long to build up mileage but i am not going to junk mileage and risk injury. I am bascially starting from scratch but i would say on my 1st long run i can manage about 8 mile and increase it a few miles each week...
My reckoning is i could manage perhaps manage 3 20 milers and a few 18 if i keep to my tight schedule....what are your thoughts can i do it?? or is it too risky?
