(wow, been a while since that's been updated...)
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.
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.
