    Hello David! Thank you for your previous advice and new suggestions in connection with this situation. Please give advice on how to be now. I was getting ready for Tokyo and Boston and they were rescheduled. If everything goes well, then I will have to run the race September 14 in Boston, September 27 in Berlin and October 11 in Chicago. How am I best to train now and when to start the liner for the September starts. I have already passed the first week of strength training according to your plan level 2.

    Andrei, with 26 weeks until Boston, you’re right on the threshold of our recommended 24-week maximum. I propose that you take a couple of weeks off, low training volume, unstructured. Then, load the Marathon plan with an end date of September 14 and repeat the first 6 weeks of the plan to extend it to 24 weeks.

    Thanks David! I will follow your advice. An additional question: how to train between marathons – after September 14 and before 27, and after September 27 to October 11?

    Andrei,

    After the Sept 14 event, load the last two weeks of the plan for Sept 27 with the following modifications:

    – No running for the first week, but you can cross train on any of the days the plan has a workout for the same duration and intensity as written in the workout. Row, cycle, ski…

    – Complete the second week as written.

    Do this for the two weeks before the Oct 11 event. You’re essentially repeating the taper but with no running the first week of the two-week taper.

    David
