I ran back to back weekend half marathon races- although neither was I really racing. Meaning- I was running them as part of my training for my full marathon the next month. IF he feels ok- I would still run it. If he has any aches- I would think he should rest

Best training for running a marathon? Run a marathon.....

My uncle is a member of the 100 club in the UK (for people who've run or attempting to run 100+ marathons - they run marathons every weekend, so I am not sure there is an absolute 'limit'. The closest marathons I've run have been 4 weeks apart & I did better on the second....

Many people will race on back to back weekends. He just has to see how he feels. I've run a Half one weekend and another the next. May not have been as fast, but if you think about it, if you were training for an ultra, you might do a marathon, then do a 'cut back' week of 13 miles. So if he is doing the full, then the half, he'll probably be okay as long as he isn't injured.

I ran a full on November 5th and then a 30k a week later. The last 5 miles of the 30k were really tough. Today is the first day I've run since Sunday. At least todays run felt good.

The rule of thumb used to be one day of recovery for each mile raced. I usually don't even run for 3 or 4 days after one.

My boyfriend and I just ran the Richmond marathon this past Saturday. We both had difficult races for different reasons. I didn't realize before the race that I had strained my hips on my last long run which made my marathon miserably painful. My boyfriend had a great 1st half with a time of an hour and 52 minutes but got horribly sick to his stomach the 2nd half. Okay....so I ran the marathon with him cause it was his 1st full marathon and gave up my chance to run our local half marathon. He hated the full marathon experience because it humbled him and he has sworn off the 26.2 distance but thinks he is a great half marathoner. He has also decided he is fully recovered and is gonna race the half on Saturday, just a week after running the full. Is this a good idea?! He is a great athlete but I'm afraid he is assuming he is all healed up and ready to race too soon or maybe I'm just a little jealous I can't run it too since my recovery may take a while longer! Or both.....What do ya'll think?!
