Very interested by this comment... Wish I'd done alonger race ahead of my last FLM effort (my longest was Kingston 16 miler which gave me loads of confidence but was still so much shorter than the 26.2). How are you using Cranleigh? Are you going to run it at full marathon pace? Faster than marathon pace? Slower? What are your test criteria going to be?Greg said:I think it's going well (as in I'm getting faster and I'm running longer distances). But there's ample time for it to go wrong still... 26 March and the Cranleigh 15/21 will be the acid test.
I certainly wouldn't want to - definitely would not recommend that for a first marathon (I wouldn't do it for my fourth either).Greg said:I don't think I want to run that kind of distance 3 weeks in a row.
