I've run a 5K the day after a marathon, and a marathon the day after a 5K. On neither occasion was the second race exceptionally good for me. Go figure.
I'm curious what everyone thinks about doing a 5K the week before a marathon.
Gut instinct tells me not to since I haven't been doing much speedwork and it's my first marathon, but I just saw a local one advertised today and was considering it.
Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Personally, I would not risk the training I put in for the first marathon.
I can't believe I didn't even think of this. Thanks for the wisdom Mike.
