I am currently at the end of week 7,(feeling really good)of the level 3 marathon plan from the 80/20 Running book. I was planning on racing the Hamburg Marathon on Sept. 13th. Due to the current situation, I feel it’s too much of a risk running in a larger international marathon at the moment. My new plan is to race a very small marathon 8 days earlier on Sept. 5th. (Saturday)
My plan would be to skip week 8 and go directly to recovery week 9. I have never run from a training plan or the marathon distance for that matter.
How would you change the final 2 Taper weeks for a Saturday race?
I would completely understand if you tell this is to big of a change for the Forum and I should use the plan customization option.
Thank you in advance for any tips/advice
