to go backwards in mileage for week to begin training plan for marathon? I'm training for May 3rd marathon...know I'll be doing less mileage, however am adding in the longer run and hills/speedwork. But I can't help but think I'm going backwards??? So frustrating! I've looked at so many plans, tried to come up with something somewhat of my own...just not happy this time around. Maybe its because this time I have a time goal in mind. ???

keep your mileage.
add the parts of the plan that extend.
do the long runs.
taper a bit less than most plans recommend.
