  • in reply to: Marathon in 6 weeks after 70.3 "A" race? #36942

    Hi Juliana.

    Yes, i did the (first) full marathon 6 weeks after the half ironman one.
    I switched the training program to one designed for the marathon (the one from Furman institute – FIRST Marathon).

    It went so-so, but i think that the biggest impact was given by the fact that during the week of the marathon we have organized a conference, so there was not enough sleep / rest 🙂

    I did much better at the 35km long run session, 2 or 3 weeks before (lower hr, no cramps). I have to give it a new try this year (i am currently targeting also the october one here in Bucharest).

    Can i share some specific experiences / answers?

    I realised i didnt correctly (completely) explain the question 🙂
    The actual option is between trying to do the full distance (my first marathon) or remaining at the half marathon distance and training to get a better time (hopefully it will slowly transition into a better run time in the 70.3 next year)

    Hello everybody, I have a similar (but not identical) issue here.
    I am signed up for a second 70.3 race *one month after the first*.
    I will have the ‘active rest / recovery’ week after the first race but then i have 4 more weeks to train.
    Should I be doing the last block of the 70.3 program? I mean do “weeks 13-16” again, or should i do two weeks from another block and then the last two weeks from the last block?

    On the same note: I would like to confirm with you that switching the “long run” and “long bike days will to accommodate friends’ schedules will not “hurt” the training (especially since both are during weekend days -so we can get more rest.

    Kind regards
