Take it easy Davie - listen to your body if it's ready to run it will
I'm once again finding myself in no mans land - trundling out miles in the 8min/ mile and above bracket but legs constantly feel tired. Tried to see if I could run 13 miles under 90 mutes at weekend but I just can't up the pace. Ended up with 96min. I know I need to be patient but feel I'll be lucky to scrape a 3.15 this autumn, part of me thinking of dropping down to focus on a half and try and get some speed back in rather than another cycle of marathon training which ends in a sub-optimal run and then another period of post marathon recovery and starting over again.
Part of me would love to run a decent half, have a good run out in Lanzarote at our annual holiday/ running challenge then train through December to build into London or even an earlier spring marathon (possibly Barcelona)....
