First, make sure that you’re recovered. Once you’ve gone 9+ miles (half) or 18+ (full) , you can maintain this level, or increase your limit, by going at least 9 miles every other weekend (half) or 18 miles every third weekend (full). Those who will do a half or full marathon six weeks after their first event would do 13-14 miles (half) (23 -26 for full) three weeks after their first event. If there are more than 6-7 weeks between events, count back from event day. Then, look at the training schedule (schedules can be found in Galloway Training Programs) for the chosen distance and count back to schedule the weekend workouts.
