Ok so I haven't posted in a while, but have still been reading all your wonderful advice and encouragment. I have less than 2 months to go for my first marathon. I am a little concerned about my running though and need your words of wisdom. I was really sick the last two Sat. that I tried to do my long runs and wasnt able to do them (very discouraging) so now I have to push my training to a 18 mile run this Sat, then 10, 21, 23, then the two week smaller runs to rest for the marathon. My question is if I should up my runs during the week to help my endurance get up there. I have been doing the Jeff Galloway walk/run program and I run 3 days a week (other than my long run) for 35 min. I am wondering if I should up those weekday runs and run longer since I feel like I am a little unprepared still (I'm up to 15 miles and it was slow when I ran it) I just am getting really nervous that my body wont be prepared enough and I want to do all I can to be ready for the race. Thanks for the advice in advance.
