I'm running Brighton on April 6th and Loch Ness on September 28th. I have a 7 week gap between Brighton and the beginning of my Loch Ness training programme. Any advice on how to use those 7 weeks, I don't want to completely step off the gas but guess I should probably ease up a little at least for a short time.

Pfitzinger and Douglas have a good post marathon plan in their Advanced Marathoning book. It's 5 weeks long, then you could prep for your next plan by doing the first two weeks as a repeat.

Squeeze in a couple of marathons?

Take a couple of weeks recovering, then train for a 5k, perhaps. A bit of speedwork will do you good.

A couple of marathons would be great but I'm not sure it would go down well at home.

There's a simple answer to that ;-)

Seriously, though, use your new-found conditioning to wham home some shorter races or get a parkrun PB, and use a bit of speed training to improve your time in the autumn.

Ok cool. Signed up to a 10k and a corporate 5k. Maybe a couple of 10ks and a summer half marathon.

Got something to say?
