Need some advice...planning to do a marathon in 6 weeks. Had planned on doing it, but work forced me to cancel plans for a few weeks, now it is back on.
Here is my problem...I have a 10 mile race the weekend (Apr 26) of my 2nd of 2 planned twenty milers and am wondering the best options for me. Run 6-10 more after the race? Run another 10-14 the day after? Anyone have this issue before?
I know people do runs before and after 10k's to hit their 18 milers (someone who is doing their 1st marathon in a few weeks!)...but is that as plausible after a 10 miler? I guess it would be. May actually be better training then just my long slow 20 miler....
Of course 16 tomorrow and 20 next weekend will really tell me how prepared I am!
