    I am planning my 2021 season currently. As of right now, I have 3 main races planned:

    Virtual HM 3/27
    US Air Force Marathon 9/17
    ORRRC Turkey Trot 5 Miler 11/25

    I am starting the level 1 HM plan today to end on 3/27. The Full marathon level 1 plan will begin 5/16/2021. The current plan is to start the 10K plan on week 3 after the Marathon with intensity variation for the first week or two depending on how I feel.

    My question is in reference to the 7 weeks between the half and full plan. I originally thought about doing the first 7 weeks of the Maintenance plan as an off season. However, I am now wondering if it would be better to add weeks 1-7 of the Marathon plan as an additional base for the marathon training.

    Any suggestions?

    Collin,

    Since the Marathon plan is 18 weeks long, there is some flexibility in extending it. I’d take a week off after the HM plan, then repeat the first 6 weeks of the Marathon plan. I agree that’s a slightly better choice than the Maintenance plan, especially since it’s just the Level 1 plan.
